How To Play The Saxophone:

First things first: If you're a white guy, you'll need a stupid hat,
the more stupid the better and preferably a beret. Sunglasses are
optional, but all the really, really good players wear them, especially
indoors. You'll also need some "gig shirts"-Hawaiians are good, but in
a pinch anything with a loud floral pattern is acceptable, as are
T-shirts from various jazz clubs and festivals. The good thing about
the latter is that you can get them mail order so you don't have to go
to all the trouble of actually seeing and hearing live music. And
sandals are an absolute must, even in winter.
