    Fantastic thanks! Great solo.

    How many bands that you have played with show that kind of restraint with respect to volume, especially in a big room. It's so nice to hear instruments rather than a PA!

    Talk about having some guts to the sound, but NOT overplaying and pushing the horn. He sounds great. That's my ideal sound right there.

    Good stuff! I'm just glad to see a bald tenor player without the stupid hat.

    Great links, cheers for posting them.
    There is some wonderful guitar playing and vocals going on there in addition to that fine horn blowing too.

    He doesn't have that over the edge bright thin sound like many players in this style have. Great!!!

    He's got some great clips on YouTube. He has the Link sound I've always worked for--but never got. Fat and full, with some edge, but still ultra focused and with a lot of guts.

    I checked out about all that I could on youtube. Now, its on to recordings that hes done. Did some searching on him and he does have a pretty impressive list of credentials on the American Music scene too. Even if some of them are not some peoples preferences, he seems to get around a little. Thanks for the enlightening. Awesome tenor tone. Great control and command over all the registers of the horn, and hes also the son of a very famous jazz musician, so that probably explains it. He is, according to what I have read, totally self taught on the instrument.
