Mr. Dynamite @ Vodice Jazz & Blues Festival

Mr. Dynamite nastupa na 15. Vodice Jazz & Blues Festivalu, 23. srpnja 2017. u 20h, Vodice.

Mr. Dynamite je bend koji njeguje glazbenu ostavštinu kralja soula i funka – neprevaziđenog James Browna, ikone crnačke popularne glazbe od 1960-tih do danas. Mr. Dynamite izvode sve ključne pjesme iz bogatog repertoara JB-a u originalnim aranžmanima, kao što su: I Feel Good, Sex Machine, It’s a Man’s World, Soul Power, Cold Sweat itd. Da bi bend imao originalni sound toga vremena brass sekcija je nazaobilazna stvar, alt sax Zdenka Ivanušića, tenor sax Vanje Ilekovića i trombon Ivana Mučića, plus funky pickin’ gitara Zorana Jaegera Jexa, groovey bas gitara Zvonimira Bučevića Buča, bubanj Marka Duvnjaka te snažan i karizmatičan vokal Ervina Baučića.
Ako u vama ima bar malo „crnačke“ krvi, plesnih mišića, i dovoljne količine znoja, obavezno navratite na „Jazz is the teacher, but funk is the preacher“ večer!

The Buescher Aristocrat “Big B” Alto Saxophone

For sale The Buescher Aristocrat “Big B” professional alto saxophone, made in 1948. The saxophone is in excellent condition. All original, lacquer, pads, snap-on resonators and gold plated Norton springs intact. Comes with the original case, neck, end plug, ligature and accessories. I just treated the pads with MusicMedic Pad Juice and it plays as is effortlessly from top to bottom with quiet action. It has smooth, focused sound and excellent intonation. I’m selling it because I prefer my The Martin Alto (Comm III), but if I did more classical work I would keep it definitely.
I prefer to sell it inside EU (no customs for EU countries), but would consider worldwide shipping also. Payment by PayPal (buyer pays fees) or pickup/cash in Zagreb (HR). Ask for the price. Pictures
