    First.*

    *...of many disappointed to realize the title actually said, "sax."

    I have always been a Van Morrison fan and after listening to that song inspired me to order CD's I don't have. Thanks for reminding me how good he really is.

    Circular breathing. it's a technique wherein one breaths in through the nose and blows out thru the mouth at the same time.
    a few horn players use it, ALL didjeridoo players use the technique.

    Exclamation

    Ask any girl who was a teen or twentysomething during the 1980s, they'll say it was this:
    Rob lowe St elmos fire Saxaphone scene - YouTube

    But for me it was probably something on "Jazz at the Plaza" by Miles Davis Quintet - Oleo or Straight no Chaser. Cannonball Adderley was the soloist there.

    Or maybe it was something Coltrane did like my favorite things, the super long version.

    Pop-wise? Wayne Shorter on Steely Dan's "Aja"?

    Wow. Talk about an All-Star lineup.

    Interesting to see a very young Gerry Mulligan.

    A foolish pit, and a bottomless one, but here's a few:
    Chris Potter on West of Hollywood (Steely Dan),
    Wayne Shorter on Aja,
    Sonny Rollins,
    Pop solo, Phil Woods on Just the way you are (Billy Joel),
    Anything by Michael Brecker, Bob Berg, Mark Russo on Politics (yellowjackets)

    Older: Coltrane - A Love Supreme
    Paul Desmond (Time Out with Dave Brubeck) greatest Alto sound ever...
    Warne Marsh, Lee Konitz, Ornette, Joe Lovano,

    I haven't even started....
    There is NO rehearsal - this is the real thing.

    My all time favourite is Johnny Hodges' solo from 2:58 in this one. It's worth hearing the whole piece to get the contrast:



    As a young man I wasted many hours trying to emulate the great alto, so I'm biased all right.
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.
