Marcel Mule Interview

This is an interview with Marcel Mule, extract from Vandoren video, although I can’t find the buy link for a full video on Vandoren.fr  (If anybody finds it anywhere, just let me know and I’ll put it here). In this video Mr. Mule talks about his early career in Musique de la Garde Republicaine military orchestra and exposure to jazz and vibrato played on saxophone. There is an interesting observation about Maurice Ravel’s Bolero first performance, where he played a solo originally written for sopranino saxophone in F on Bb soprano saxophone under Ravel’s conducting.

Additionally there is an interview with Marcel Mule on Dorn Publishing site here done by David J. Gibson – pdf file with this interview, also check out the article Marcel Mule – His Life And The Saxophone, published in Saxophone Journal.
