Best Blogs I Followed In 2014

Wow, 2014 is over already. Luckily, I spent some of 2014 reading some blogs that I find interesting.

  • Best. Saxophone. Website. Ever. This site generally has good articles posted on it, though lately there are other authors posting. And the quality of the articles is a little questionable (like the “Introducing the Most Unique Sax Tone Development Device on the Market).
  • Bill Plake Music. Great articles here. You should follow the site.
  • Bobby Stern Jazz. If I had to rank my favorite sites, this would be #1. Bobby posts AWESOME exercises, transcriptions, and articles.
  • Bret Pimentel posts great, insightful articles.
  • Matt Otto Good free things to work on. Glad he stopped charing $.99 for his sheets on Scribd
  • Jazz Advice. I think every article they have put out is great. If anything, everyone should read every article here.
  • Bulletproof Musician. Like the above site, every one of the articles is great. Go read them. Now.
  • Casa Valdez Studios. He hasn’t been posting much, but when he does, you need to read it. Good stuff.

Yet Another “Vintage Meyer” Clone

Seems every year, we have another “this is THE vintage Meyer copy” mouthpiece. Here is a review of D’Addario’s latest attempt.

As an owner of a vintage Meyer Brother’s alto mouthpiece, a 4 that was opened up to a 6 by the late great Jon Van Wie, I have never found a mouthpiece like it. Not to say that there are not great mouthpieces out there, there are PLENTY of excellent mouthpieces being made today. They just lack the “character” of a vintage Meyer Brothers piece.

Beulah Witch

Here is an arrangement I did of Beulah Witch from the Tribute to Buddy Rich album. Enjoy.

Update: I found a mistake in the saxophone parts. Somehow they were missing a bar around letter J. That has been fixed. Also posted an alternate version with two altos instead of Soprano and Alto.
