So not having enough strength to play the sax for 26 years, something happened last winter and boom, there it was. I would have never spent a penny on a Sax at this age, and were it not for my 50 year old son-in-law catching the Sax bug and deciding to learn to play, buying a pawn shop special, then investing in a couple of really nice horns, giving me the pawn shop special, I would have never tried to play again.
It was a huge frustration in the years following the accident watching my very fine horns sit and rot. So I gave some away and sold some. I owned some really stellar instruments, but it is amazing what this $150, pawn shop special can do. It's not like riding a bike, it is taking effort, but it has been so much fun to play after all these years.
Here is a recording I made in 1985, 32 years ago. I'm playing piano and sax. Sax recorded to a click track and piano over dubbed.
