Came across this on YouTube, looked at first like a couple of geezers having a laugh, but as soon as the playing started – I was hooked… The sax player is Dan Higgins – relatively unknown to the wide world, but if you start ‘Googling’ him – he’s everywhere ! Even seems to have been the man who inspired Lisa Simpson – the real Bleedin’ Gums Murphy…
And it’s a borrowed C-Mel, as well ! Thanks Dan, such a relaxed sound, gorgeous, and totally in context for the instrument’s origins.
Click on the YouTube link, if the image doesn’t play, and/or to listen to more great sounds on a bigger screen, from Dan on a variety of woodwinds.
