My 2018 resolution was to buy a Saxophone and become good at it. Well, I bought this beauty 6 weeks back and have been learning by myself. It's such an incredible instrument that I can't wait each day to find the time to practise.
My playing is very sloppy right now and have a long long way to go but I couldn't contain the excitement of finally being able to play around with it!
Привет, подпикусы! 😄
С вами Соня! И сегодня мы с моим саксофоном зажигаем в bahroma_spb 🤩
Я уже в отчаянии от такой мерзопакостной погоды, поэтому включаю свою супер-способность извлекать красивые звуки из саксофона и начинаю разогревать танцпол! Пусть всем сегодня будет тепло!
💃🏻🎷 Поехали! 🕺🏻🕺🏻🕺🏻
My weekend cover story on the Palestinian crooner Omar Kamal. With his slick suit-and-tie get-up, it didn’t take long for the press to dub Kamal the “Palestinian Frank Sinatra”. While chuffed with the generous comparison, he is rather ambivalent to the moniker and the fact that his nationality always crops up in interviews. While understanding the complaints of fellow creative compatriots that such distinctions take away from their work, Kamal says it’s a major part of his story that he simply can’t deny. Indeed, the UK based Kamal regularly travels home to Nablus, not only to see his family but to recalibrate himself from the hard grind of touring. “It brings me back to ground zero,” he says. “I owe a lot to being Palestinian, because it gave me a lot of push as well. I can say that comfortably because that’s the truth.” Link in bio.
I'm just seeing this, but thank you to JazzMusicArchives.com for this amazing review of my project, Say What. As an artist, it can be nerve wrecking releasing new music. It's like baring your soul to the world, and you never know how the world is going to respond. I'm just grateful that people are listening, and appreciating the music. #GodIsGood 🙏🏾 #MikeBurtonSayWhat#MikeBurton#saxophone#SoulMusic#Jazz#HipHop#GospelMusic
