So I’ve spent some time on the piece now, found a good reed and so on, and man it’s just so good. Big, round, warm, woody, yet still retains great forward motion and bite. It’s relateable, yet unique! Low Bb is as full as high D, and I think that’s what I love most. It has an old somewhat Steve lacy vibe, and I’m just digging it so much. And an equal part late trane, cutting, emotionality to it. It goes where I want it. So happy! I’m really looking forward to putting years on this piece. Thank you again! Keep doing what you do.
