More great playing
You're a very mature player for your age. I love your tone (very Brecker-like), and your grasp of the chord changes and the way they move is well beyond your years. For someone who's only played for a couple years, you show an understanding of the instrument and of the music that most can't fathom in a lifetime of practice. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, don't stop playing!
And if you're having trouble finding a private instructor, I'll be happy to help you...because a talent like yours should be developed to it's fullest extent.
Kid, if you play like this at 16, then I can't wait to hear you in a few years...
Reminiscient of Michael Brecker and Eric Marienthal, respectively...very mature playing and very hip. Keep practicing, and no matter what, keep playing. You have a HUGE gift here, and I can't wait til the world gets a load of you...
Best to you!
Very nice balance--you made it heavy while keeping it tasteful...can almost see Dreamtheater playing this arrangement.
Get's my 5...again, great job.
Dream Theater ... Wow, thank you very much dude. Dream Theater is one of my favourite band, actually. I'm glad you liked it.
Just love your stuff, man. Dig the lounge feeling with the underlying funk beat. You and your wife sound great!
Again, you get my 5!
i will get myself together those days and finish some stuff she already recorded ... probably i'll put it here
Very Bobby McFerrin...this put a smile on my face!

Now That's Funky...
...enough said! You have a chart for this, or am I gonna have to transcribe it?
Great stuff, you've got my "5" !!
if you want, i can try to find the notes, scan them and send you
pm me if ...
Fantastic work, and I agree with one of the previous comments...very clear influences from Danny Elfman/Alf Clausen. Makes a very bold statement, great job.
Keep it up
Horace Silver tunes are sometimes deceptively hard, and "Song For My Father" is no exception. This tune is essentially a blues-based tune disguised as a bossa, and you kept your solo very specific to the blues tradition, but it is okay to get away from the blues scale. You may also like to look into your mouthpiece/reed setup, as it sounds as if you're overblowing it a bit. Overall, good job, and keep practicing--you'll get there.
You're on your way
Very nice tone, and a solid interpretation of a classic standard. You're definately on your way...maybe take a listen to Grover Washington's recording of this song from his album "Then and Now". Although he plays alto on the cut, his feel is similar, it's always helpful to listen to a master's take on any piece of standard music. Good job.
