It felt so good to practice tonight!
I’m testing new horns and mouthpieces. Fun, fun fun!
I played live in public this weekend. Hooray!
My saxophone returned from the sax doctor in great condition and I played three days this week!
I have a wedding gig in September which will be good motivation to practice! Also, the saxophone doctor gave her a physical and did some work on him while I was on vacation. He should be in tip top playing condition.
I tested mouthpieces on both alto and tenor this week. I am getting a Rousseau classical alto mouthpiece. It is amazingly dark…. much darker than a C*, which is surprising to me! I didn’t find anything for tenor yet but I still am working on it.
I have used the same mouthpiece/reed/ligature setup for the past 17 years. However, lately I have suspected that I need a jazz setup that requires less air. I got a box of Rico Jazz Select Reeds in 3Soft. They were not hard enough for me, so I need to look for something else.
I have been practicing much more lately to prepare for a solo classical performance. I haven’t performed a classical solo in at least six years so I am a bit nervous. (I also am embarrassed that it has been that long!)
Focused on some technique issues in a classical solo.
