For a 14-year-old sax player, Elizabeth Mis of Bay Village isn't shy about e-mailing her idols to see whether she can duet with them. That's how she ended up next to jazz guitarist Peter Smith at his 2004 concert at Pickwick & Frolic. "But I hadn't told him I was 13," says Mis. "I said, Do you still want me to play? He said, ‘Yeah, you had the guts to ask me. So sure.'" Mis has also sat in with guitarist Paul Brown and trumpeter Chris Botti, and she's played the national anthem at both Tribe and Cavs games. But the gig that's eluding her is a date with saxman Dave Koz. "I'd give anything if I could play with him," she says. "Even during a soundcheck."
