Gear update! I’m using a fantastic new wireless microphone for my saxes – the DPA d:vote™ 4099S Instrument Microphone. It’s the best mic I’ve used for my tenor and soprano saxophones. I am blown away by these new mics! It gives me an exact reproduction of my sound. Congrats to DPA for doing a great job!
UPDATE: check out what Jazzwise Magazine (link opens in a new window/tab) had to say about our gig last week at Ronnie Scott’s! And if you think that one was “face melting” – this gig at the Jazz Cafe will be the FACE MELTINGEST EVER! LOL :) :)
