My Theo Wanne mouthpieces gives me the big, beautiful tenor sound that I used to hear in my saxophone heroes such as Brecker or Potter, and that I always wished to attain. Thanks to it’s versatility I can play it in all sorts of different circumstances and styles, such as jazz, pop, funk, brass band, etc.

Q:What is your internal experience when you feel REALLY connected to the music?
A:This doesn’t happen every time I play music, but the chance that it might is a determining factor in why I keep doing it so fervently. The moment I close my eyes, time and space disappear and my saxophone plays itself. I have reached the state of utmost connection.
