Me, I'd play the melody in the same key as the backing track, but each to their own....

indeed, starting note is F# on alto not B, maybe Dave you are thinking tenor key fingerings, i done that before.

i think there are quite a few "standards" that no-one knows the right keys for:
Summertime, Autumn leaves and all-the-things-you-are spring to mind,
all guaranteed to start an argument at a jam session.

your Alto & mouthpiece combo sounds good, Davey, and nicely recorded.

Thanks Andy.I admit I mostly hate playing alto but the yam 23/jumbo java mp seems nice and it will do me for my little bits I do on alto.I've done summertime in the right alto key many times but this mess about it never even crossed my mind or ears.Done a couple of alto versions on here before.Pressed record and just closed eyes and blew.Strange how your ears just take you certain ways at times.Its different though,,,hey that's a good excuse for sure,,,lols
