American Big Band dates

Posted by Tim Gordon on December 7, 2013 at 11:54am 0 Comments

Finishing up four days with the American Big Band "Home for the Holidays" Christmas Show. What a great group of consumate professionals. You'd expect nothing less out of Nashville TN. They don't call it music city for nothing.

The entire cast is absolutely swinging. Steve Kummer is the bomb, along with Jimmy Boland, Vinnie Ciesielski, and Josh on drums. The singers and dancers are superb. So much fun.........

Last night Michele and I went out to hear the band Mingo Fishtrap. What a great band to hear live. They are funky, soulful and just down right fun. 

It was a special treat to talk to Dan Bechdolt the tenor plkayer with the band. He is a nice guy and lots of fun to listen to. Dan is playing on a new FJIII Macsax mouthpiece designed by Eric Falcon. He loves it and sounded great. What, you thought we wern't going to talk about that? It's a small world and Dan had run into my friend Doug…

Industry Veteran Ricky Schultz says...

"The measure of a musician is their body of work.  It's what seperates the men from the boys.​

Credentials --- the company you keep. It takes time, opportunity, and in the end-real talent do such a thing. You have to put in many thousands of hours--you can't fake the funk.

What makes a body of work? Twenty years with both The Temptations and The Four Tops. Like a rock.

Having worked with a list of artists so deep, (Google it) from so many genres, that suddenly it hits you--TIM GORDON is one of those players--one of the clutch, go to saxophonists in contemporary music.

Dedicated to his art, Tim is a connoisseur-level musician. His dedication is apparent when you hear his sound. And suddenly it hits you again--you've probably heard him before, maybe even seen him along your musical journey.

SOULFUL, hip-smart, and technically brilliant. What else could you ask of a saxophone player?

Encyclopedic range, comfort with any kind of music, and besides all that? He's a real nice guy.


You're in for a real treat here. Tim Gordon has finally made a record of his own.

Enjoy,
Ricky Schultz
