Working with the SWAM instruments has made a huge difference in my work.
Lately, there is rarely a project that I’m doing where I’m not using at least one of the instruments.
The comments I have gotten back from my musician friends and clients has been overwhelmingly positive and even some sax players asking me.. “Hey..who’s that soprano sax player… sounds a lot like Wayne Shorter”.
I have to proudly tell them that it’s me!
Thank you guys for these wonderful tools to play with.
