I've been skulking around for some months, and have learnt a lot from the forum. So it's about time I tried to contribute. I am a born again sax player, having given up for 40 years and started playing again five years ago. I took up alto again, but found that there were so many alto players around that the chance of getting a gig was pretty small. So I bought a baritone, and don't regret it for a minute. My only worry is that senility will get me before I can play like Gerry Mulligan!
