OUR WEEKLY UPLOAD


We are taking a break from our Saturday demo videos for this week’s upload. Instead, we have a performance from our friend Jody Espina and his trio featuring Maggie Evans and Benedetto Customer Relations Manager, Jackson Evans. Jody owns the world renowned JodyJazz Inc., makers of high-end saxophone mouthpieces. We think it’s pretty cool to have another purveyor of ultra-high quality, jazz specific music gear right here in Savannah, Georgia! We also want to make mention of all the extra help Maggie has given us this year. You’ve gotten to know her in videos and gigs with Howard Paul but did you know she is married to Jackson and performs with him often as well? More importantly, did you know today is her birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGGIE and thanks for all the support!

NIMBLE WYBLE


The great Beth Marlis showing some serious dexterity with this Jimmy Wyble etude.

Beth said, “Jimmy’s Jazz Etude Two (w/his fingerings) is one of the hardest tunes I’ve ever studied. I can rarely play it perfectly; it took a quarantine for me to finally attempt it.”

Bravo, Beth!
