He stood at the front of the small, heaving, packed bar with the house band and improvised like an old pro.
When the mic broke the lead singer asked him what he was going to do - "play louder" he said to a round of applause and cheers.
The regulars were coming up to him and shaking him by the hand sharing tales of sax players they love.
He's still buzzing this morning and I don't think I need to tell you how proud I am!!!!!!!
