    Re: Am I the only one who feels this way?

    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...

    Re: Am I the only one who feels this way?

    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...
  3. Re: Lester Young 1956: listen to this amazing solo

    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...

    Re: Brilhart Tonalin Mouthpiece

    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...
  5. Re: Looking for songs where NWII horn is played.

    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...
  6. Re: Derek Trucks: A Genius Blues Guitarist Who Plays Like a Saxophonist

    Uncle Turtle. I was going to say you can't hear the similarities? how can that be? But then I remembered you're the cat with that beautiful Conn NW and as long as there remains a slight possibility,...
  7. Re: Derek Trucks: A Genius Blues Guitarist Who Plays Like a Saxophonist

    I was gassed on first hearing Derek Trucks, but don't listen to him too much anymore. After awhile it feels he's just reduced his mentor Duane Allman's music to a science and you don't get the sense...

    Sticky: Re: Why don't tenors sound like this anymore?

    Your clip is blocked for Canada so I started looking through YouTube for a duplicate until I came across this masterpiece.

    Must concede, he's a great...

    Sticky: Re: Why don't tenors sound like this anymore?

    "they also don't mention Arnett Cobb, who is according to me an equally big or even bigger founder of the style then Jacquet. Jacquet played alto next to Cobb before he went to Lionel Hampton in the...

    Re: Whose Tone Don't You Like Now?

    Lunceford's tenor was Joe. His tone really transformed over the years from his sorta hawkinsy Lunceford days to a speech-like mid fourties balladeer to an early r'nb-er in the fifties. He never...

    Sticky: Re: Why don't tenors sound like this anymore?

    Hawkins was known throughout his career as being the great listener so I'm sure his early days he soaked up everything around him, probably people we don't know. He mentions Stump Evans and Prince...

    Re: When is it time to throw away your reed?

    You can always 'just pick your reed up, trim your tip off, and start all over again, scooby scooby', and come back for a couple choruses, well courses.

    Re: Remembering Buster Smith!

    His is one of the great 'what if', 'could have been' stories in jazz. He was one of the original members of the Kansas City Basie band, and by all accounts a great soloist, but is said to have not...

    At least you guys can still buy and sell on eBay if you want. Ever since that notice to change your password, every time I attempt to, or even sign in with my old password, I always get a red stop...
  15. Re: Iverson transcription of new Lester Young Tea for Two solo

    Here's one for PowerOfSoul. A smidgeon of Lester on clarinet from the Savory stuff. The poster doesn't say how he got his hands on it. An interesting sidebar is the information that Blue and...

    Re: Remembering Albert Ayler!

    So glad to see this on YouTube. So great to hear Albert operating out of a get down groove and Henry Vestine just burns. Fantastic.

  18. Re: Iverson transcription of new Lester Young Tea for Two solo

    That would be so great if you could transcribe and post up Star Dust. If it is ever to rival Hawk's Body and Soul as the great moody tenor ballad of the day, it looks like it's going to need another...
  19. Re: Iverson transcription of new Lester Young Tea for Two solo

    Thanks to Guido for the Ethan info. I guess I was thinking Ethan had made the transcription for the OP PowerofSoul to put up on his blog, and I should ask him if he would ask Ethan if he could do the...
  20. Re: Iverson transcription of new Lester Young Tea for Two solo

    I guess I should do this via private email, and may later, but I wanted to inquire if Ethan would be willing to transcribe a Herschel Evans solo from the Savory collection. Jan Evensmo, from Jazz...
