Great show last night by Mingo Fishtrap

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 Moffit earlier in the week. Get out to hear Mingo Fishtrap if you get a chance.

         Here's to you Dan, great job. What a fun night. Travel safe.

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.
