NOTIFICATIONS/CHANGES/UPDATES: For whatever reason, my emails have been forwarded to an unknown address for the last 6 months or possibly longer so I am letting everyone know that the email is [email protected] and I have repaired the problem on this site. I will be outside the USA from January to March but will still receive emails from this page. Sorry for all the problems and Happy Veterans Day. Ciao for now. 11/10/18
MobileJazzImprov, is a solo performance act which uses professionally produced backtracks with saxophone, and the Electronic Woodwind Instrument (EWI). A vocalist is added on many types of performances. I have been performing as a solo act since the 1980s. Prior to the introduction of the electronic instruments I was using alto, tenor and soprano saxophones and flute. Around 1988 I started using the Yamaha WX11 EWI which gave me 128 sounds/instruments and 5 octaves. Currently, I use the Roland AE 10 Aerophone which also has traditional saxophone fingerings with many additional options. There are 8 octaves, 128 sounds on board the instrument itself and it can access hundreds more through many different available programs. It also has the ability to play chords, it can scat sing, and plays sax, flute, clarinet, flugel horn, upright bass and an array of expressive synth sounds to name a few. The entire setup requires a space of approximately 6 foot square and sets up in less than 10 minutes. Click on the songlist page to see a basic list of tunes. [email protected]
