I had a good 2 hours to sit down and play some tenor.
I have been testing out the CEWinds.com mouthpieces for awhile now. ( The Legend 1 and 2 and the Sig) They are all great pieces just wish I could afford them all.
Today I played a lot on the Legend 2 piece and went through "Dedicated to You" from that Johnny Hartman and John Coltrane album. I posted a sample on my Audio/Video page.
Also listened a lot to some tracks I haven't enjoyed in awhile.
Sonny Rollins - A NIGHT AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD - "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise"
Sonny Rollins - NOW'S THE TIME - "I Remember Clifford"
Brecker Brothers - THE RETURN OF THE BRECKER BROTHERS - "Spherical"
I listened to these over and over today.
