New blog post and a great video of the sax quartet Itchy Fingers.
Here is a great Saxophone quartet to check out. Itchy Fingers was put together by Saxophonist Mike Mower in 1986 and went on to win a string of Jazz Awards. Below is a really great version of their tune Yuppieville Rodeo and as you may notice they have no music on stage!

New post from The Sax Academy.
Embouchure – How to learn from the best. Recently I've been spending more time on embouchure technique with my students and at the end of one particular lesson, one of my students asked how easy it would be to emulate one of his favourite saxophone players; Cannonball Adderley.

Freelance Saxophonist, Teacher and Composer
Introduction

Jamie Ryder is a Freelance saxophonist, Composer and Teacher based in South Derbyshire.

A natural performer from a young age, Jamie has been playing the saxophone for nearly 20 years. Within those 20 years, 16 of them has been playing live around the globe. Starting in working mens and social clubs around the Midlands, Jamie developed an ear for Jazz and around the age of 16 he stated playing in local big bands and small jazz groups.

At 19 Jamie moved to Devon to study Jazz at the University of Exeter. Here, under the tutelage of John Taylor, Jon Eato, Stan Sulzmann and Niki Iles, Jamie refined his playing whilst remaining an active member of the South West music scene, playing with his own successful jazz quartet as well as other ensembles.

Since graduating in 2006 Jamie has been working as a freelance musician, most notably playing tenor saxophone with the successful mod band DC Fontana. It was with DC Fontana that Jamie had the great opportunity of touring Europe performing in Italy, Spain, Germany, France and Switzerland.

Jamie has appeared on several recordings including three albums with DC Fontana, the first, “Six Against Eight”, being recorded in the prestigious Parr Street Studios in Liverpool. Jamie went onto record “Meshkalina” and “LaContessa” with DC gaining a huge amount of experience in the recording studio.

Jamie is an in demand session musician and has since gone on to other projects, most notably the KM Collective where Jamie plays tenor sax and has arranged horn parts for their upcoming album. A highly competent reader and improviser, Jamie has the ability to fit into any style and genre that is required.

Me and my Fiancee had a wonderful time here. We were well looked after and the food was amazing. We hope to return sooner rather then later!

Great place. Small, cosy and amazing food. You might need to wait a bit for a table, but well worth the wait.
