    The Glorious Soprano Sax

    another extract from the wonderful album recorded in 1986 by Branford Marsalis playing soprano sax with the English Chamber Orchestra.
    I wish I had the Orchestra Chorus to go with it.

    Faure: Pavane featuring JABB soprano sax accompanied by the GPO players

    Faure - Pavane (extract)

    I hope you all enjoy it.

    Hi Gary, thanks for listening

    My wife tells me this piece is used for a television series here in the UK.
    "Poirot" one of Agatha Christies detectives.
    I'm assuming it was scored for oboe or clarinet originally but I may be wrong.

    Kind Regards

    Hi Ray,

    Nice job with this! Very lovely piece of music, too. I think I have seen all the Poirot series (my wife and I are fans). Maybe that's why this piece sounds so familiar...
    There is a lot of exposed alto playing in some of the episodes.

    Well done!

    Regards,

    Jim

    Thanks for your post Jim,

    From a saxophonist, great!!!
    I'm a guitarist making music through midi that I couldn't do otherwise.
    Do you use this medium to create sax music or to create a band to play along with or ????.
    I'm really interested to know what everyone gets out this technology over and above the simple enjoyment gained.

    Kind Regards

    You are welcome, Ray!

    I love the fact that technology has advanced to the point that we have so many wonderful options to make music. Like a number of forum members here, I do remember when there wasn't MIDI - and how that opened up vast possibilities for musicians that were not envisioned by those responsible for developing the protocol.

    I own JABB and Strad. Having just started using JABB, I love having all the different colors to use in the composing/arranging phase of a project. I will, however, be replacing the trumpets (except maybe some of the great super screamer stuff), saxes and flutes for the final versions of projects for which I am the composer, since I play those instruments.

    As I get to know the Strad, I'm very excited to use this as well!

    I also partner with other music-makers (see my site) to add real horns to their music - sax solos and horn sections.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Really nice to hear the Saprano sax. Very beautifully rendered. Love the strings. Nice and full.

    Thanks for listening,
    This is the first piece I presented here where during mixing I was riding the faders with my mouse.
    I'm definitely going to buy a good control surface like one of those Mackie units.

    If you do decide on Mackie control surface get the new Pro! Also, please do post more of your work. Very enjoyable!

    Thanks for the interest,
    I've already looked at the new Pro. I know it's quality but it's very expensive considering the exchange rate over here at the moment. I'm also looking at the Yamaha 01X. I know the faders probably aren't so good but it is well priced at the moment and has much more to offer in processing in and out etc.
