Re: [Harp-L] Toots preference for Eb & Bb

I think that's right; if you're going to play jazz tunes in the keys they were written in, you're going to be playing in Bb, Eb and F quite a bit...F more than Eb, probably. All three of those keys lay out well on the C chromatic, by the way.

I assume Toots likes those keys because he's a jazz musician who was massively influenced by (and worked with) sax players. Many jazz tunes are written in those keys as they lay out well on the sax.
