I would like to thank everyone who came to the roadshow in February and made it a great success. We will do it again this time next year and thank you for your support. I had the pleasure of playing with master pianist Omar Sosa on April 13 at the Piedmont Piano Company in San Francisco. Playing an improvised ballad in C minor we stepped off into the unknown together.

From Our Website

Older woodwinds, flutes, saxophones, clarinets, bassoons and oboes, particularly those built before 1965, have a different sound. Over the last fifty years everything has gotten louder. Sound systems in movie theatres, concerts, dance music; I would say the volume of the environment we live in has been turned up. These older instruments are a reflection of a time when the kind of sound, the depth, warmth, the harmonic spectrum present was more important than the volume itself. It is a reflection of the spiritual decisions made about what the instrument makers and musicians wanted to hear at that time.
