I’m not funny, what I am is brave!
Like a motor bike…..designed primarily for functionality…the saxophone is by accident, a beautiful thing. Whether it’s a King Silversonic or a Selmer MkV1…whether it’s Johnny Hodges…Arthur Blythe….Stan Getz or Ben Webster the sax has always symbolized the world of smoky nightclubs and beautiful women, a low income…next to no job prospects and a place along with percussionists in the tour manager’s file called ‘‘luxury extras’’.
Needless to say…a large part of my life was susequently spent in smoky nightclubs…there may have been a few beautiful women……but there cetainly wasn’t much money.
So I’m playing a private party for dentists tonight. A number of funny thoughts ran through my head on the drive. The first one being: I’ll play a lot of offensive painful sounds in honor of anyone that’s had a bad dentistry experience. Once I got to the hotel, I realized I forgot to pack toothpaste. That alone is irony but maybe I’ll score some free toothpaste samples. I will be very tempted to randomly yell “Rinse!” I’m sure I’ll think of more.
