Aminn thats pretty cool i like that,i have had a go at this one my self quite a few times,but you have a good grasp on the improvising sounded great, what was you throwing around into it i could do with some of that.

I enjoyed it. What model microphone are you using?

Jordan: I was just following the changes. At some points noodling up and down the D minor scale when I was playing the fast stuff. It’s mostly a ii V i in D minor for tenor (Concert C), and there’s a part in the middle where the chords go into a more major feel before going back into the ii V i. When improvising, its best to follow the changes as best as you can.
Mel: I’m using an Audio-Technica AT2020 cardioid condenser mic, only about $100 when I got it.October 31, 2016 at 5:51 pm #42779
Gorgeous stuff Aminn–love your tone 🙂 Very inspiring to say the least. You mention what reeds you use, what MP are you using? Your playing is a great example how you can get a great, big tone on an Ebonite/Hard Rubber MP. Keep it up 🙂October 31, 2016 at 7:44 pm #42781
Hey Michael, it’s a Jodyjazz HR 7*. Thanks!November 3, 2016 at 10:44 am #42888
Hey johnny, any insight or advice on this video?November 3, 2016 at 12:02 pm #42889
well played Aminn,
theres two approaches to playing it and the one you’ve gone for is what i call the flowing approach which is dreamy smooth and silky.
because the backing track has a lot of swing, the other approach would be to jazz it more and put more swing into playing it. that would involve a lot more emphasis on it like starting out Dah Dat Dah Da Dat Dah Da Dah etc.. which is where singing it can first gives a stronger feel for where the emotions occur which you can then transfer to the sax when playing it.
Either way its well playedDecember 20, 2016 at 6:35 pm #45303
nice keep it upDecember 21, 2016 at 4:25 am #45314
Liked that, have you used a cane reed on this
mouthpiece yet? I don’t like synthetic reeds,
I can always here the buzz from them and for
me you cant beat a good cane reed. Nice mouthpiece
like that deserves a good reed IMO still you played
Michael your right about the m/piece and how you can get
a nice tone and edge with HR pieces, I have just gone over
to a hard rubber from a metal which I played for many years,
just bought a 10MFAN=MERLOT 7* I am delighted with it, no
problem at all with the change over from the metal, sounds great
it has the sound I have wanted for a long time.December 21, 2016 at 9:12 am #45323
Sorry I missed this upload Aminn!
you got some good stuff going on there. it’s great that you can get along with that synthetic reed.
you’re doing the right thing, and that is to play those long scale bursts to get a handle on it harmonically, but I think you’re
at the point now of turning those scale-type patterns into shorter, more idea-oriented riffs. this is where I started getting
some ideas from older and more mature players I respected…just something to think about.February 14, 2017 at 4:04 am #48599
