How Many Colours Do You Have In Your Paint Set?

When I saw this photo on Flickr I immediately fell in love with it. A vintage Conn. Colourful lights in a photographically painted ribbon. For a big kid like me, what’s not to love?

I really like the stage light shining at the bow of the sax illuminating its left-sided bell keys and stand. This effect gives the horn a mysterious feel in time and space.

Further adding to the space feel, is the light painting that reminds me of a Sci-Fi effect you would have seen in the original Star Trek movie with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy—circa 1979.

…this is just my blog. My “real” website is www.bassic-sax.info. If you’re looking for sax info, you should check it out too.There’s lots there!

    • I had heard/read that somewhere, but I can’t remember where now. Thanks for the link.

      Leonard Nimoy has always impressed me. His intellect and his talent seemed to know no limits. I wonder what else he is talented in.
