2015 ~ Year of the Sax

Don’t play the saxophone. Let it play you. ~ Charlie Parker


I’m looking forward to a music filled year. I am playing in a concert band, running a big band, and nursing my favorite sax x-tet (where x = the number of sax players) along. I have been subbing for a number of bands, the pay is nice.

Now retired almost a year, I have been listening to more music. I have doubled my time practicing the sax and the clarinet. I replaced my Yanagisawa b-991 with a b-992. And I’m starting to make my way through libraries of music that need filing. It should be a wonderful 2015.

Just an itinerant saxophonist trying to find life between the changes. I have retired from the Corps of Engineers and Microsoft. I am an admin on the Woodwind Forum, run the Seattle Solid GOLD Big Band (formerly the Microsoft Jumpin' Jive Orchestra) a GOLD sax quartet, and enjoy time with family and friends.

    Retired? As in RETIRED retired? (Hard to imagine!) That aside, a year of pursuing what you love sounds pretty great to me… A year of sax, more sax, and as much sax in all ways that suit you? Heavenly. Happy New Year!
