Paul Harder Vancouver, B.C. Saxophone is a hobby. Thanks to Tom Keenlyside who in very first lesson said go swap the alto for a tenor and buy the best metal mouthpiece I could afford! Also to early teacher Bill Meikle, and my high school music teacher Fred Gass (R&B Allstars) who instilled a love of funk. Proud member, Hand of Fate Alumni! All-time favourites include Michael Brecker, Emilio Castillo, John Coltrane, Karl Denson, Tom Keenlyside, Bobby Keys, Eric Leeds, Joe Lovano, Branford Marsalis, Maceo Parker, David Sanborn, John Zorn. We Want the Funk!
