Days of Wine And Roses

Sorry, there is no video of me playing this time. You can tell it is me because I miss the 2nd note in the tune. I’ve been practicing this song for several days now, and I don’t really play it that well yet. Days of Wine And Roses is a great song. I have a recording of Dexter Gordon’s version. He really tears it up.

I chose to record myself today because my sax sound was really good today. Anytime I start sounding as good as I did today, I try to record. One day I will play the song as well I sound. I am using the Vandoren V16 Metal mouthpiece with a 2-1/2 Vandoren Java reed. This mouthpiece is becoming my favorite for the style of music. The more I play it, the better I sound on it.

I’m interested to hear what you think of the sound. Let me know in the comments below.
