James Bailey trombone and sax at the same time.

From a recent performance.

Saxomoboning. Not easy, and not exactly symphony-level playing, but proof that it can at least be done.

James I watched this back when you did it but checking out again.  You should employ your looper in this which you are doing live actually organic but it would be interesting to layer some of the duality I think.  Well done.

Circular breaths is possible and probably rhythmic too I think it might get easier to sit down and do? I know I was in marching band with my trombone and never had a breath problem but as I have played some things these days I needed to sit to increase my air capacity. Either way what is more comfortable should work the best.

Yeah, it does take a bit more, So I'm working on developing some sort of circular breathing that will work easily with it. No real practicing involved, at least in terms of a tune. It's all made up in the moment.

It seems to take lots of air, as it is show by the short bursts of sound... I don't thing anything can be done about that specially if you are standing up when playing ... very very nice stuff.. szxomoboning -- the section minute 2:52 seems to have been practiced well.
