This morning at Cannonball I engraved three "Vintage" straight soprano saxophones. These, along with a 4th I had engraved earlier, are slated to go to a reviewer with Downbeat Magazine who'll write an article about this new addition to the Cannonball line for an upcoming issue. I'll admit, I'm really proud of the engraving I did on these horns and am hoping that I (or just the engraving itself I guess) get a brief mention. Maybe it will say something like, "Each saxophone features luxuriously spectacular hand engraving by the amazing and multi-talented Kelly Ricks". Well, ok, I suppose that might be asking a bit much...especially considering I'll be leaving the company at the end of the month. Still, I'll be looking forward to reading the article and seeing if my work gets a little nod.
