SAXOPHONES STAY GETTING THE MICHAEL KEATON TREATMENT
It's an exciting time to be a saxophone. Plucked from near death by "GDFR," the instrument you thought Bill Clinton killed in '92 with his Brötzmann-inspired antics now enjoys a second wind with a star turn on MOZZY'S "Love Slidn."
Man is it smooth. This the kinda shit that make you wanna put on an '80s blazer and shades, grab your Selmer, and head out to a foggy dock for some sultry wailing. Word to Bleeding Gums, holla at Joshua Redman fighting Yo Yo Ma on Arthur. If the saxophone can be rehabilitated, there might still be life for the hopeless case of the clarinet.
