Don't forget my archives...

"If they act too hip, you know they can’t play $#!T."
- Miles Davis

So I finished my mouthpiece article and posted it. Now I guess I have to come up with some other subject matter. I hope people are checking the archives - I have a lot of great posts written on various topics that are worth checking out, and just because they're a couple of months old it doesn't mean that the information isn't current anymore.

I guess I'll list some ideas I have for upcoming posts. Reply in the comments section of this post if you have any preferences.

- Improvisation 101 for the non-musician
- jazz history in 500 words or less
- musicality vs. technical proficiency


Q: When should a saxophonist change his reed?
A: Whenever a difficult section comes up in the music score.

Wow, Cam. It'd been a while since you posted, but then again it's been an even LONGER while since I commented!

My personal interest is in jazz history 500 words or less, but "Improvisation 101 for the non-musician" is too good to pass up...

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

I'll be working on those article here and there over the next little while.
