Cartoon with Killer Alto Saxophone Solo
I know that this brilliant video by sax player Allen Mezquida has been out for a while, but I still wanted to feature it here in case anyone missed it.
What I love about it is not only is the animation awesome, but the saxophone playing is great. Amazing to know that Allen was responsible for both the animation and the music.
To see the entire series of jazz-inspired videos known as “Smigly”, check out the website at http://smigly.tv. [Sorry(!), but this web page has disappeared since the original publication of this article]
I plan on featuring more of Allen’s unique work in the future, as there is a very interesting back story as to how he combined his talents for music and animation. But for now, I leave you with this lovely video entitled “I Heart Jazz.”
