Sax players, listen to the music and help?
This is a sax player's pun. I got this direct from Lee Konitz at the session (but I couldn't understand it). And then Ed Michel listened and attempted to enlighten me. The tune is "A Minor Blues in F" by Lee Konitz. (the snippet is Art and Lee). The "academic pun," which is what Ed called it, has to do with the tune being in either A minor or in F, but that is because if it's written for piano it's one key and if it's written for alto sax it's another. If there is an EASY and entertaining way to explain it in the liner note for non-musicians like myself, I'd love to know what it is. If not I'll go with "academic pun." Anyone?
