  • New Album “The Feel Of Life” (Almus Jazz) is now available for **Free Download**

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20161472/MikeAllenMilesBlackDuo-TheFeelOfLife.zip

    Pianist Miles Black and I have been making music together for nearly twenty years. These days it’s mainly in my groups but in the past we have worked together as members of other groups led by bassist-Chuck Israels, drummer-Dave Robbins, and Nashville bassist/vocalist-Jim Ferguson. All that playing together in various situations has spawned a deep musical connection showcased by this transparent duo setting (soprano sax and piano) featuring a set of our favourite jazz standards and one original tune by Miles. We hope you enjoy the music and feel free to share it with your friends.

  • Yanagisawa Artist

    After 30 years with Selmer saxophones, Mike is now playing and endorsing Yanagisawa saxophones: Tenor-991-S, Alto-991-S and Soprano-991-S models, and enhanced by solid silver neck pipes on both tenor and alto.

    “Yanagisawa saxophones are beautifully crafted instruments that play in tune and encourage a full, personal sound.”
    -Mike Allen
