  1. Re: So what speakers do you have in your home system?

    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.
  2. Re: Does anyone else get scairdy about metal mouthpieces?

    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...

    Re: Why is jazz not as popular as it use to be

    " 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...

    Re: Brilhart Tonalin

    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...

    Re: Why is jazz not as popular as it use to be

    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...

    Re: Why is jazz not as popular as it use to be

    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....

    Re: Why is jazz not as popular as it use to be

    "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...

    Re: Why is jazz not as popular as it use to be

    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...

    Re: Why Conn?

    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...

    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...
  12. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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,...
  16. 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...

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

    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...
