An African rhythm but the name stick game is about a New Zealand Maori game that is meant to be a test of coordination. This certainly tests my coordination. From a live jam. All welcome to join in the fun.

Thanks Xavi. Not as slick as a lot of pieces posted here, but it's a live jam, so has flaws. Glad you like.

I could listen to you play all day...

Really? I have trouble listening to me play all day. Ha! Hopefully by now you can tell how much I appreciate your music and playing. Very inspirational for me. Do it live some time???

Don't get me wrong---pre :41 was great, just started focusing there. Then couldn't stop. :)

I'm not that sensitive! That was a great review. Thanks again.

Gerhard's guitar is so full of a gently bursting joyousness! You match his mood so beautifully, Wade - honestly, your tones are soooooo pretty - your endings are exquisite. your harmony lines are whimsically wonderful. i never knew a sax could be controlled so well - have never heard such a soft mellow sax til now. :41 - to the perfect end was especially brilliant. i know you're smiling NOW. :)

How could I not smile after a review like that! Too kind. My approach to sax is "open" I'd rather not play the expected jazz cliches. Just another instrument with lots of possibilities.

"Smiling now" as in appreciating your own abilities, as in knowing it sounded good. Certainly not cuz of my harsh review! :)

Hmmm. A different reality. I'm a jammer and this was a live jam. I'm dong what I can to be "in the moment". Anytime the ego creeps in the music stops coming out of me. Can enjoy, but shouldn't own what's happening. It flows through.

I have enormous respect for you and others who "compose". You work at your art/craft honing and have much to be proud of and fantastic accomplishments. I'm only as good as what I can do in the moment and can't really think about that as it's happening.

at the risk of beating a dying horse: "can't really think about that as it's happening." and in my humble (if it's Tuesday) opionion, THAT'S exactly why you CAN smile NOW, cuz "the happening" has passed and you can hear what you've done. ok, now don't lemme post here again, Wade!

OK,but maybe just a small tease: Most of us tend to be our own worst critics..."better note choices, timing, tone, etc." I'm particularly bad about this, but maybe it's OK as it helps me strive and improve. If the listeners are entertained by what happened that's good and it does satisfy. I think an audience more easily forgives flubs if the overall feel and sound is good.

Wade, your sound is SO good! :)

So uplifting.😁

Thanks MalCo. I got to make sue I don't smile while playing (wrong face shape for playing).

Yea, that's the shape
