Soprano Saxophones

After playing Tenor Saxophone for a year or so, and listening to a few major Soprano Saxophone players, I bought a Yamaha YSS-62R....Wow, what a lovely sound and gee, what hard work it was to play well and "in-tune"!!! Not as forgiving as the Tenor or any other saxophone for that matter,excluding the Sopranino.... The Soprano Saxophone became my major horn as I traveled around the world alot, studying different styles of music in a few different countries, the major ones being Egypt, Morrocco, and India... I made a great traveling tube for the Soprano that I could sling over my shoulder and climb mountains with... Some of my favourite Soprano players are, Jan Garbarek, Wayne Shorter, Branford Marsalis, John Coltrane, Steve Lacy, and Australian Saxophonist, Sandy Evans... I met Branford Marsalis once at a Jazz Festival in Hamburg Germany. After chatting with him for a few minutes, he got me into the festival for free and took me back stage before his gig with his Buckshot LeFonque Band and we chatted for about half an hour...As I had my Soprano Sax and my didgereedoo with me, he invited me to join his group for a play....I declined, as there was no way I could have been any good with that fantastic group, but the offer was fantastic and I will always remember what a really giving man he is....
