Hello from Philadelphia

Hello from Philadelphia

Postby DannyLuciano » Tue December 20 2011 09:33 AM


I recently found this Jazz forum while searching for Jazz related subjects. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and our new website I began my musical career in the mid-fifties playing tenor saxophone with local bands in the area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. During this time, I studied the saxophone rudiments with Mike Guerra, the former Granoff Music School teacher, of John Coltrane, Gerry Mulligan, and many others around the Philadelphia area. Mike Guerra also had his private studio in the Presser Building located 18th & Chestnut Streets in center city Philadelphia. Having more than 55 years of experience as a tenor saxophonist has given me the opportunity to express my viewpoints on the meaning of Mainstream Jazz -Straight Ahead Jazz and the meaning of “Playing in the Pocket” in other words . . . “It Don’t Mean A Thing . . . If It Ain’t Got That Swing!”
