Lucked out and got a chance to perform a little Sax Therapy, Jeff Robinson's tribute to that most versatile of reeds - and all of it's many shades & textures. I really enjoyed doing this show, even though I was only halfway awake - I hope to get another chance down the line, because I had so much more to play! Please take a listen by clicking on the Roland Kirk LP below, and be sure to check out Jeff and Sax Therapy alternate Tuesdays 10:00-Midnight EST on 88.1 FM, WMBR - Cambridge, MA
