"I have been enjoying Courtney's soulful sax performances for over a decade. He has great tone, excellent stage presence, and a joyous connection with music. Few sax players have such a versatile ear. I am often blown away how he can create a sax line to compliment a rock and roll song when you wouldn't think the instrument would naturally fit in. I have seen Courtney sit in at many an open mic and raise the energy in the room - no rehearsal required."
