Hi David,

I tried downloading the mp3s today a few times but it keeps coming up as a Zappa track with some commentary. I'm not sure whether it's just my computer.

Az,
A retarted elf on tranquilizers changed my links. It works again now.

Hey Dave,
I just checked out these recordings and have been listening to Bob's new recording. I'm curious as to what mouthpiece he's playing on? It sounds like a HR link to me but he get's some nice edge out of it on the new album. Great playing by you by the way. I love your alto tone! Thanks, Steve

I believe Bob plays a Slant Link 8.
I like his sound too, though once in a while you can hear that such a big facing makes his sound kind of wild.
The guy is a monster and still very young.

I'm playing my old slant Link 6 with the very long lay and a WWBW Paris Jazz reed, with a light cutout Rovner. I now only use Riggotti 3 1/2 hard reeds.
