mouth watering flavours we can learn to colour our improvisations in a masterful way superimposing triads, taking our playing rapidly to a higher level.

    This is me as a tenor sax player of intermediate experience tackling the thing I'm least good at which is reading music. I know I'm not as proficient as many musicians who would buy your music however, it's a method of challenge I've used in the past to get on with conquering my fears about trying to achieve that which I'm interested. Fear of failure is less than my fear of not having tried if you take my meaning! All in all I like your presentation of music...the bits I understand! Steve Parrock.
