JAZZWISE Magazine has joined forces with JP Musical Instruments, to bring musicians the chance of winning a fantastic JP245 alto saxophone which featured in the Jazzwise Instrument Review section of the May issue.
The JP245, which sells for £763, is a beautifully finished instrument in yellow brass with some tasteful floral engraving that not only adorns the bell, but also the body. Qualiy is the keyword, with blue springs, solid screws, metal reflectors and calf pads. In the playability stakes Jazzwise gave it the thumbs, describing it as being a free and easy blower with crisp keywork, clear altissimo and a full-bodied, well defined lower register. Jazzwise were also mightily impressed by its extraordinary dynamic range. 'This is some sax!', they said. Road ready, it comes in a lightweight, denier covered semi-solid, plush lined zippered case.
How to win!
To win this great instrument, just answer the following question. Who played the alto saxophone on the Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time Out album? What it: Bud Shank, Art Pepper, or Paul Desmond.
