Blessed with an exceptionally powerful physique and enormous wind power, the Space Alien soon managed to coax a sound from this gigantic instrument, but certain that expert instruction would be the best path to mastery, decided to audition with the well-known and highly respected classical saxophone musician, Jeremy Ruthrauff (Q.V.), who welcomed the Space Alien to his studio and kindly asked the prospective student to play for him.
|Orchestra Hall, Chicago|
The combination of exquisite natural musicianship, superb instruction, and a strong work ethic soon began to bear fruit, and in an astonishingly short time the Space Alien was prepared for a solo recital at Chicago's Orchestra Hall! Saxophonist Jeremy Ruthrauff was so proud of his student! And the Space Alien was so grateful to Jeremy Ruthrauff for his outstanding instruction.

Among the music lovers in the standing room only crowd at Orchestra Hall that night was President Bill Clinton, also a saxophone player, who applauded enthusiastically and brought his own tenor sax along so that the Space Alien could autograph the case.
President Clinton invited the Space Alien to jam with his jazz group but the Space Alien sadly expressed regret at not yet being sufficiently skilled in jazz improvisation. "Perhaps next year!" the Space Alien politely told this new fan.
