Fantastic material about jazz, improv and sax playing!
I think every jazz saxophonist (at any level) will get a lot out of this podcast!
This podcast has already featured some of the top names in jazz and it's only a few weeks in to publication. Each interview yields a lot of great information for not only saxophone players, but jazz fans in general.
Informative and entertaining
Really enjoying these interviews world class jazz saxophonists.
