Sax!

Well, I am starting to get back into playing the sax. It use to be such a passion for me, and I am getting the bug again. I have been playing mostly bass guitar for the last 10 years, and I am damn good, if I say so myself.

I was a bit sadden thou. I was looking for my Eugene Rousseau classical mouth piece for my tenor and I can not find it. I loved that mouth piece. During and after college, i switched to a Selmer c** metal mouth piece and then to a Brilhart metal mouth piece, and played mostly on metal for a more projecting sound. I was playing mostly rock, which is what I am doing now with Henley and the Loops (a charity band formed mostly of Dr., 2 lawyers and me the accountant lol). But I am wanting a deeper richer tone, which started me on my quest to fine my old mouthpiece.

Also, if anyone ever reads this blog, and has any knowledge ( I know I am really stretching here) on the Conn 22m, I would be grateful to know more about it. I feel like i was conned ( no pun intended) into buying it. Even thou it sounds nice, I think I was told it was more of a sax than it is. My alto is a Super Action 80 series II, which is a piece of art. With the Conn I fell like I playing an old jalopy.

By the way, only 17 more days till pitchers and catchers report (some of the most beautiful words in the world) and 36 more days till I leave for spring training in Florida!!!!

Go Cardinals!
