Just love this blues track from Balfo. Hope I didn't trod to heavily in making this a duo.


i need a new thesaurus!! old adjectives just will NOT do. Wade, you slide and slur like nobody's bizness - NObody's! fantastic spotlight on Balfo from 1:23 to 1:35 - good of you to let him shine. :) the harmony at 1:54 melts me. my ear could chew on this all day long. THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN!+2

Wade You are so sweet in your comments. Most contemporary sax players/teachers will tell you that a sax should never use slides. Don't know why, but it's current orthodoxy. I'm sort of doing a trombone like thing and love using slides where I think appropriate. +1
One of the thing that I love most from your sax play Wade is how you blend smoothly with the track, how you calm the heart with your playful style, outstanding performance!+2

Wade What an amazing thing to say! Best compliment ever. It's the real test to see how well one can fit in. In this one I'm taking a very forward position considering Balfo's track certainly didn't need to become a duo. +1

aleonz what I learn (coughing) hehehe,
from the time I acknowledge you and balfo have that "strong character" in the way the two of you play your instruments. but somehow you manage how to make the balance without dominating one to another, and it's make an outstanding instrumental duet performance , an excellent dialogue in one track.and that's sooo incredible extra cool! Bravo for the two of you :)

Wade Part of this may come from not thinking of the sax as always being a dominant solo instrument. I'm very happy giving support and just being "in the music". Can't see the point of playing on top of anyone. I'm happy to leave 98% of tracks alone if I have nothing to say or add. Blues and jazz are fairly solid areas for sax players. IMHO the mistake many sax players make is to impose these on top of other styles instead of using the sax as just another instrument. +0
This is the most bluesiest blues piece, I´ve been listening for a long time! How is this sax style called again... Ah I know: It´s best played wade style! :)+1

Wade Don't know that much about Blues styles. Do hear people talking about Memphis style compared to Chicago...but couldn't tell you what the difference is. To me it's just swampy. Glad you like. All due to Balfo's magic slide work. +1
Very cool blues, Wade!+1
