I really have no idea Mel. Possibly just getting older. Its a very physical thing hard R&R tenor and can take its toll. My back is totally shot. When I get another bari I’ll have to sit and use a jiffy stand ( a clamp and stand combined ). They are real expensive for a good one but your angles need to be spot on. Dunno Mel , hopefully for all the right reasons and he’s happy growing dental floss in Montana !!
Feeling strangely positive about the tenor trade. Its on its way after a four day delay. The guys still very cool and calm…all good. Keep y’ all posted. I’m really into slide guitar. Ry Cooder, slow improvisations. I’ve borrowed the strat the Peavey combo. I’m a guitar hero for a day or two. Seriously, I took the slide to an Eb guitar backing tack on you tube. I approach it without any criticism, its not what I do. It sounded great, I might well keep it up….a bit !!
Those backing tracks. Some are pretty good.
That is the greatest rock & roll song !!
This Saturday Mel ?? Yeah !!!!!☺
Think its been a while since he came to the UK.
Any idea who’s replacing Hank ? Is he back….still gone ? Have to do a last coupla hours, can’t put this bari down today. Gotta finish with some overtones; altissimo stuff. Got a band rehearsal tomorrow ( if nobody cancels !! ). So , bari down, tenorsax up. See y, all later….😉
I drink alone is a great tune Mel, just so darn sleazy !! Glad your about. I just got a coupla mails off of Joel C Peskin at ” retro revival ” mpcs. The first showed his new site. Its their first anniversary. Its based obviously on reproducing the golden mpcs. Sonny’s link. Phil Woods Meyer and on. To go with each promo there is a clip. Turpentine, Fathead. If you are on the ” retro ” mailing list, you will have got one. Each clip is stunning… You’ll enjoy them. Thanks again for all your time and effort loading these tunes. Between these and JFs backing tracks, I’d be long since tired of my rambling on. That’s the thing though, were moving forward, finding players old and new.
Not like another place I could mention, where they argue bitterly over the color of dexters shoes…😇
