Hi my name is Roy.like all Roys I was named many decades ago.
I play clarinet in a trio/ quartet with my friends. When I retired I decided to try to learn sax , chiefly cos I thought it will be easier to improvise. Have been having a go on tenor for about a year now, but with some big gaps. Still a long way to go !
Musically I feel wind playing is all about TONE. We have the best instruments to produce beautiful sound. Jazzwise I think it’s about feeling ,heart, excitement.
My chief heroes are ( not all of these are sax players !) Mozart, Jack Brymer, Michael Collins, Johnny Dodds, Louis, Miles, Bechet, Lester Young, Paul Desmond, Dankworth, Kenny G, Pavarotti, and , not for his tone but other gifts, Bach.
