Merry Christmas from Ragtime Rudolph

Hello Folks! Merry Christmas from Ragtime Rudolph!
The lovely Keiko Lenz-Fujitsuka on piano and me on tenor sax. Hope you enjoy!

Took my beauty to Saxophone Service Duchstein for a tune-up.
Using a light to check for any leaks, the expert craftsman adjusted a few spots. When he started using a mini flame thrower on my sax, I was shocked at first. But as he explained, it is used to heat up the metal part on top of the pad, so the bond gets flexible and the pad can be slightly re-positioned.

True craftsman always amaze me. My Super 80 is back in impeccable shape and plays just beautifully 😉

Love these guys!




Blue Trane Reloaded

Here is a quick take on the John Coltrane classic “Blue Trane”.

Me on tenor sax, loving the sound of my new Otto Link STM mouthpiece along

with the Aebersold All Stars. Hope you dig.
