Poll about Conn and Selmer saxes in SOTW.

I want to share this poll made it in Sax on the Web site (the best forum for sax players in the world) about the best sounding saxophone, making the comparison between vintage Conns and Selmers, only in relation with the sound. Check this out:!-)

In addition I want to add some video clips of Conn players. First to all there is an interesting video of Dave O´Higgins, playing a Conn New Wonder with Eric Alexander, playing a Selmer Mark VI. Look the differences of sound:

Furthermore, there is a video in another kind fo Conn sounding (for me one of the best) or the great tenor sax player Jamie Oehlers with the piano player Sam Keevers, doing the tune "Simple Pleasures".

I hope you enjoyed it like me!!!!!!!!!!

Blue Method of Emotional Sensorial Practice in Music (2)

I want to develop some insights about this book. I feel that the link between music and emotion has been treated in few opportunities because the subjectivity of the human feelings and the multiplicity of results that this can produce in every person. But my aim is to show that when one human being try to explore or to achieve some musical goal there isn´t way to avoid the subjective matter. Art is subjectivity like every person is subjective. In the way that one musician must show your subjecitivity then your mission is accomplished. In that meaning I explore the ways to watch every musical aspect in subjective terms. In 12 chapters I develop this idea founding three basics thinkings to achieve this goal: 1) The experience lived; 2) The mistake and 3) To let onself go. There are eight less basic thinkins developed to complement this: 4) The context; 5) The musician; 6) The code; 7) The tone; 8) The harmony; 9) The musical tempo; 10) The contextual tempo and 11) The intention.

More useful links!!!!

There are several sites in the net: (Steve´s Neff web site, this is the best source to choose mouthpieces, almost for me, there are clips of several pieces tried by Neff, incredible!!!!)  (in this site there are all kind of vintage saxes, with pictures in all of the models available) (this is the renowed downbeat magazine, the Holy Bible in jazz)
