I know this clip has been linked here before, lastly by Mr Tim Price, I think, but if you're going to compare "Dreamboats", this one, by Herb Hardesty has to have a hearing. Love those little two bar...
"I read recently where it is said the definition of greatness is when everything that came before you becomes obsolete and everything after bears your mark."
Just came upon this quote. I suppose...
I recently came upon a quote from Chet Atkins that he felt Duane Allman had rendered the saxophone obsolete. Not quite sure what he meant by that though Duane is surely the most melodic, magically...

Funny though how there is some kind of collective unconscious memory that runs through the years. When there's a genre of music that's the voice of a generation, and it runs its course and the public...

Hi Fi is one of the last avenues of Do It Yourself hobbyism left. Not so easy to soup up a car or bike in the back yard anymore, but an inexperienced amateur can fairly easily build himself a set of...

Pair of Klipsch style Electro Voice Cardinal corner horns modified with cone driven wooden Edgarhorn mid ranges with two '50's Electrohome KT66 triode Williamson amps.

I think it has a lot to do with one's blowing style. If you play with just the tip of the mouthpiece in your mouth, the teeth are a lot more susceptible to being bashed working the mouthpiece. That...

" older farts cling to their Allman Brothers"
Ha ha. That's me. An old fart. I'll take it. I just cling to Brother Duane. Just love his playing. Almost incomparable. Maybe the last example of a...
Not surprised you got no responses. I had a thread on Tonalins way back, and concluded modern sax players just prefer their big *** tips and that's that. Like your description of Tonalins sound, and...

Yea. So sad. Amy was the greatest. The reason I finally forked out for cable was one of our stations was running old Jules Holland shows every day and I quickly learned he had a penchent for moody...

I think jazz is still as popular as ever and still in demand if people knew what to ask for. The trouble is the horn players don't play it anymore, [gotta follow the agenda] but the singers sure do....

"We don't want dancers, we don't want teenyboppers.."
Blimey! I'm so stupid. I still can't tell if that whole big post is serious or sarcasm.
I do know that Louis Armstrong ambassadored jazz to...

It's just not as good. Inventions seem to come all at once, like there's all of a sudden more than one inventor trying to make an airplane, or Edison and Tesla having the same ideas separately. For...
Came across this quote from Paul Quinicette in a Basie book.
"I don't play a Selmer to this day. I call my horn Matilda and I've had eight of them. This one, the eighth, is a collector's item, a...

Back to Funky Blues for a sec, I think it was in one of its re-issues' liner notes that it was remembered there was considerable tension at that session. Benny Carter was angry for years at Oscar...

I'm not so sure citing Funky Blues as an example of Parker's greatness is such a great idea. All three altoists are so fantastic. Parker's and Benny Carter's solos are just about my favourite solos...

Regarding Mr Ferrini's welcome news about a Lester Young film in the works, I wasn't too enthused about the interviews from sorta second removed though famous enough music figures. So many musicians...
If you were thinking about buying a Tonalin, then settling on an Ebolin, don't reach the conclusion you've got the idea of how Tonalins sound just from hearing Ebolins. Must be some people can make...

I admit I'm slightly in the sauce but it appears the name of this horn is slowly evolving into NWII. Chu Berry was never quite correct and New Wonder is such a dorky name, so hence NWII which isn't...
