Had a great night at The Paradox, Tilburg!
Mouthpiece fans, even though we are still working on it, we are closer than ever to getting the first prototype copy of the “Bill Evans Signature” tenor sax mouthpiece finished. It really plays great, feels and sounds like my mouthpiece. We’ve been working on this for over a year, it’s incredibly exciting. I have never played a mouthpiece that plays as good as mine, EVER, and I’m not going to release one that isn’t exactly like mine; we’re almost there. We are working on the logo, packaging etc. A lot of things go into making a mouthpiece, but let me assure you, the BES (Bill Evans Signature) will blow everything else out of the park. This I know. I’ve tried everything else! :)

Did we ever have a blast at this gig! The CT crowd rocked, we rocked back – just kept feeding off each other. Can’t wait to do it again!

Here’s an announcement I’m thrilled to make! We’re getting ready to release “Bill Evans Soulgrass – Live in Moscow” in early October.
