11-30-2008 Practice Session 02

This session is what I call "playing on the edge" or "Jazzcid Rock." What I'm doing here is hitting the harmonics on the low end of the horn to get chords out of the sax. It's very tricky to hit just the right harmonic and produce a chord in the octave you want. Kind of like dancing on the head of a pin - but I was very "on" tonight and I think this tuned out fairly well. I recorded it using my Sony ICD-P620 digital recorder with the on-board mike, so the recording is low-bitrate and noisy, but the playing is some of my better practice jam. I think all-inall, you'll enjoy this.

Thank you for listening.
