Greetings from Seattle, aka the Emerald City. This is Gandalfe, aka JaAG to my friends at work, aka Jim Glass to my family. I’m mostly an itinerant jazz saxophonist trying to find life between the changes. Oh, did I mention that after retiring from the Corps of Engineers after 20 years of service to the US Army, I’ve worked at Microsoft for 20 years. Now in my spare time, I admin on the Woodwind Forum and manage the Microsoft Jazz Band.
I have an extensive collection of saxophones from the dimutive soprillo sax to the scary cool bass sax custom made with keyworks to low A. I also have a contempory collection of clarinets from the effer to the contrabass clarinet. I also have two really nice metal soprano clarinets, a silver Selmer Paris with a tunable barrel and a Buescher TruTone with albert keyworks.
Not always politically correct, sometimes outspoken, I am often found posting stuff that might offend some. If you have a sense of humor and an inquisitive spirit, you might find some posts that you like. Feel free to point to anything on this blog as long as you mention either my name or the name of this blog. Cheers.
