Not being a big fan of Steve Goodson, I’ve always tried to keep an open mind throughout all the internet feuding – I vividly remember the saga of Roger Aldridge’s disappearing soprano sax. I came across this video, on YouTube.
I’d always expected Sax Gourmet (and Orpheo / Vespro saxophones) to be in a prestigious New Orleans location, but, from a brief glimpse of the workshop in the background, I guess this is the main place. Yes, the photo’s in this Ferree’s article seem to confirm it. He’s messier than me !
Reading about his classy overhauls on the website, I didn’t somehow image a setup like that. No wonder he lost poor old Rogers soprano in that lot ! Although it is quite possible, since Katrina, that things have changed a bit.
P.S. feel free to comment Steve, comments always welcome here, unlike on your blog…
