Question: I know that Grover Washington and John Coltrane are really good. Do you know of any other musicans that are awesome jazz saxophonists? I am an amatuer sax player (mostly tenor sax) and I am looking for recordings of some of the masters playing jazz. If you know of John Coultrane or Grover Washington, what songs should I look up by them? I have been playing for 5 years, just in case that helps.

if ur a beginner in saxophones, it's a good idea to listen to Lester Young. other tenorsax greats for me are Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Branford Marsalis, Sonny Rollins, Stan Getz. the more modern ones are Joshua Redman, Michael Brecker

(Rashsaan) Roland Kirk was a total master of the sax. He was able to do his own form of circular breathing. He could put two saxes in his mouth and play two different songs at the same time. He was also blind. Because of all this he was considered, by many, to be a sideshow musician and never taken seriously. However, many also recognize him as a master. Get the album The Inflated Tearhttp://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql... It's his masterpiece. Listen to his song that's also called The Inflated Tear, than you will know. PS-Kirk was the first musician who turned me onto jazz. As far as what song for Coltrane- Try My Favorite Things from the Newport '63 album and prepare to be blown away. The answer just below my answer are great suggestions, Joe Henderson is one of my top favorites, try the Mode For Joe album.

Generally, when you are in a sport you are encouraged to eat healthily. That means lots of water and gatorade so you don't get dehydrated, healthy food. No more of that sugary, greasy stuff! That's a rarity. Keep your eyes on the greens. That's only the key to help you gain that stomach, without it the task would be much more difficult. While working out for track, you do many different things. You run, a lot. Warm up runs; slow, average, fast. (jogging, distance, and sprinting.) You also work on your strength, mainly in your legs. To do this, check out my list of things that I do; WALL SQUAT. A wall squat is an exercise where you lean against a wall in a sitting down position. Sit against the wall as if you were going to sit on a bench, but keep your back straight. (along the wall) Stay in this position for two minutes. If you haven't done this before, start with one minute. These squats target the muscles of the back, abddomen, and thigh. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS. A mountain climber is an exercise where you get in the push-up position and alternate legs, as if you were when running. You bring one leg up to your chest, then switch to the other. Do this quickly for a minute, or more if you can tolerate it. This is a good exercise if you don't have a lot of time on your hands and want to work on your legs. PYLOMETRIC SQUATS. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then, squat down, bending your knees to 90 degrees. And after that, you'll jump up and land softly again in the squat position. Use the strength in your legs to jump up with such excitement. Make sure you land softly, knees bent. LUNGES. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and then lunge forward with your left leg. Come back up, and straight your left leg. You right leg should not have touched the floor when you did that lunge. I also do many other exercises, such as balances. You should research more on this topic. For the upper body, push ups are good. So are sit ups and superman. I would give you more examples, but quite frankly I have to get ready for an extra practice. I've actually got a meet in a few days, so we want to practice as much as possible. P.S.: Don't push yourself too hard! Do what you can, and slowly add on to it. You'll be fit in no time. Have fun. :)

Your theory is correct. A true batsman (Tendulkar, Lara, Sangakarra, Jayawardene, Sehwag, Kallis etc) should be able to play on both SPINNING and SEAMING pitches. Ricky Ponting's average in India is absolutely terrible. The only team who aren't flat track bullies (out side of sub continent) are South Africa because they have good results in subcontinent.
