Age - love the have yourself a merry time cut - very musical, and that's what counts - and actually lasts when you hear stuff you did 10 years ago!  Hah.   I especially like the Dexter Gordon pic.  that's a hoot and a half!

times-you're playing and thinking-Toots couldn't play this any better

It's great to have an appreciative audience but no matter what anyone else thinks, these, the times when I feel I nailed it, are the times I enjoy the most.

That is so true, Danny. Me, I'm more critical than anyone and I really want to please myself and my bandmates more than anyone else - however, really great performers know how to work to please the audience, which is far different from pleasing yourself and your colleagues and in many ways has nothing to do with how well you play - it's more about how you help people have a good time - it's a complementary, but different skill than being a musician.   

All that said - as a musician, here's WHAT I REALLY LIVE BY:  what musicians are really doing is improving their lousiness level!  In other words, the most important improvement is how well we play when we are at our worst - not our best!  (I also find this is a lot easier to monitor for myself than how well I do when I'm at my best - maybe because I'm more in touch with how I play at my worst!  Hah, hah)

Yeah, here we go again (and again)  :)
Looks like another Suzuki knockoff and a good looking MeisterKlasse knockoff further down the page. Hmmm ::)

The Tony Eyers Trio are back in action with "Old Grimes", an Old Time tune. The middle player is using the new Brendan Power OctaHarp, fitted with two Seydel Major Cross harmonicas, in D and low D.

Boris is not just a great player, he's also an expert customiser. If you want a harmonica just like this, Boris will make one for you! Here are the details:

Been a fan of Boris ever since he did that vacuum cleaner commercial.

GENERAL CHROMATIC DISCUSSION / Re: soft case for four octave chromatics
« Last post by fgbrault on Today at 05:28:25 PM »
Hurray - the soft Seydel case for the Symphony fits Suzuki and Hohner 16 holers really well.  There hasn't been a four octave soft case available since F&R Farrell went away (not that I know of, and I've looked). 

I have a few of the old F&R Farrell cases and they fit all of them, even 2016's - but you can't get those anymore and they're so old that the plastic inside them is beginning to deteriorate (not good).  The Seydel case DOES NOT FIT A CBH 2016 - but it does fit the Hohners and Suzukis.  And it's available at a reasonable price form Rockin' Ron.  I love it.  I have no fiscal or any other connection to Seydel or Rockin' Ron, but I thought some of you might want to know that this case works!

I bought the Seydel Case fro Rockin Ron for my Suzuki SCX 64 and love it too.  It fits my SCX 64 beautifully.
