My soprano sax is called Junko, she’s smooth, sleek and gorgeous, she’s my main squeeze and she’s learning to follow my instructions – she doesn’t freak out on me too much any more.
Junko. One of my saxophones.
But I bought an alto sax a short while ago too – he’s old, also Japanese-built and surprisingly good at what he does, so I’ve called him Miyagi.
Mr Miyagi. Not one of my saxophones.
