Recording Session for UNESCO

Did a recording session the other day for UNESCO. Thanks for the opportunity to do something good, Ruth Webber! This is my “new” 1958 Selmer Mark VI alto.

What a Valentine’s Day!

This year (2015), I played an engagement party in Del Mar for Valentine’s Day.  So romantic!  I’ll most likely be playing their Jewish wedding in June, either with my chamber music quartet “Sebastian With Strings” or solo with “SoloYo.”  I used to get down playing lots of weddings, much preferring concerts, recording sessions, corporate entertainment and doing instrumental synagogue services, but now I really enjoy them.  I think it’s because I’ve gotten more mature and can see the time coming when my own children will be standing under a chuppah.  Anyway, mazel tov to the beautiful couple and happy families!

My “new” Mark VI alto

Just got this beautiful Mark VI alto sax made in 1958.  It’s by far the best saxophone I’ve played in my entire life.  Although I’ve been playing a lot of tenor sax on my corporate and private events, I think I’m going to transition back to alto, since it is such a joy to play this horn.  I hope that I can figure out a way to incorporate this horn into my Jewish weddings and b’nai mitzvah simchas along with my soprano sax and beloved Brannen-Cooper flute.
