During a recent combo rehearsal, I was asked how I came to choose the saxophone...
ME: I really can't remember; it looked like a lot of fun; a bunch of my
friends were playing it...so, it wasn't exactly "all the cool kids age
doing it," but that was a factor.
KID: I've seen those selection
sessions at school before, and it's crazy. These people who are going to
be musicians...it's like picking your Pokemon at the beginning of the
game, and it's yours for the rest of your life.
