MUSIC

One of the advantages of being retired is to be able to pursue some of the activities or interests that one could not easily afford during a full and active professional life. I used to play saxophone in Rhythm & Blues bands during the 1960's as a means of supporting my expenses during my college and university years. I had never completely abandoned the instrument and was able in recent years to bring it out and record some of my favourite songs. I hope you enjoy listening to them.

MUSIQUE

Un des avantages d'être à la retraite est la possibilité de reprendre certaines activités que l'on ne pouvait facilement poursuivre au cours d'une carrière professionnelle active. Je jouais du saxophone dans des groupes de Rythm & Blues au cours des années 1960 ce qui m'a permis de couvrir mes dépenses durant mes études universitaires. Je n'ai jamais complètement abandonné l'instrument et je fus en mesure de le reprendre au cours des dernières années et d'enregistrer quelques-unes de mes pièces préférées. J'espère qu'elles vous plairont.
