    Oh, thank you, Gord for that trip down memory lane. I sadly have not played my horn much in the last 8 years, but I bought my first pack of reeds just last month. Good luck in finding a horn.

    Still my old tenor Superaction Series II. It desperately needs a tuneup but the tone is still pretty fabulous. Despite how little I play it, I have not been able to give it up. I haven’t had time to find other people to jam with out here and I’m horribly rusty, but I’m hopeful that I’ll get back on that horse here shortly.

    Gord, soprano, alto, tenor, or baritone sax?

    I remember the first girl I ever fell for had an alto. We met at music camp, and I remember having to carry her alto like a mile across camp for her once. At fourteen, it was pretty heavy. I remember thinking . . . “She just wants someone to carry her damn saxophone!”

    Also, your “Popular Posts” module looks like one very long weird paragraph. I love it.

    Damn, I’m feeling really old right now… I couldn’t remember that I had the alto and I can’t remember when I sold it and I’m thinking it must’ve been in university some time because by the time I was there, I had pretty much stopped playing alto. Yeah, Bb, it feels so natural to me. Don’t envy me because of Rick. There was something “odd” about his enthusiasm with me. How many 30 something sax teachers ask their 17 year old students to go to the Bassment with them to see concerts… in his minivan. I was always very naive about it and everything was all very innocent, but as a mother with two girls… I’d never let them do the same… ever…
