HELGE’S LIVE CD
HELGE’S LIVE CD is out now in Germany and contains great chunks of the comedy to be enjoyed on the current tour plus some of the songs performed by the band. Helge’s multi-instrumental talent is heard well here with his piano, trumpet and several saxes. He recently bought a very rare Buescher C-melody sax from 1928 in great condition. You can hear this on C Jam Blues and it sounds very warm. At the beginning of saxophone history it was heard often but fell into disuse as the alto and tenor saxes became the main instruments in jazz. Check out Frankie Trumbauer with Bix Beiderbecke to hear the origins of this sound.
