    I don' even believe Wynton said this. I'm sure it was electronically altered.

    Sure, W.M was facetious. It was a joke. But...humor always gets one to think. watch some of the works of George carlin. He was thee best comedian who got you to think. And that's what we're doing. Thinkin'.

    So, when I always refer to a saxophone as a glorified version of a brass kazoo, I want you to know I'm joking, but it gets you thinkin' doesn't it? I love the saxophone!;-)

    Saxophones.......what a waste of brass. Couldn't they use lead or zinc? :roll:

    No, no, no, they are quite handy - turn one upside down, hang it over the clothesline, and use the keys/pads to hold your trumpet music. How do the rest of you practice outside? :cool:

    Well.....since you asked. I like to get the sax player to hold the music and I stand on the sax so I don't get my feet muddy, BUT sax players have such a short attention span, they don't hold the music long :roll:

    Well, they are definately my least favorite instrument. They always for some reason remind me of those cheap party blowers that roll in and out when you play them. I really don't know why. But I have a solution as to why they don't make them out of lead. They would poison the player and be way too heavy to hold. So what to do about this dilemma of brass-wasting?? Maybe we could start making them out of copper?
