    Just two questions: Where's the Bar located relative to the stage, and does the band get a discount?

    Hey that's really terrific Cooljazz, thanks for posting that link.

    A couple of questions/comments:

    1) Who is that to the right of Lockjaw Davis?

    2) As with the pic above, it appears that Coleman Hawkins played remarkably far out on his mouthpiece, and of course had a sound that was legendary for its size.

    3) That's a great pic of Trane's chops. I don't know what you call the muscle right under your lower lip, but his looks MASSIVE, like a weight-lifter's biceps. I guess that comes from practicing 12 hours a day.

    The man right from Eddie Davis is Flip Phillips. I take this picture from Norman Granz DVD “Improvisation”. I like a lot this His solo. Unfortunately I have never listened something else from Flip Phillips. Coleman Hawkins played the “Ballade” with Bird on this picture. It was realy great sound.

    Very interesting photo concept. I recognize Sanborn's as the embouchure he uses while playing from seeing him in videos, and others appear to be taken during a performance, but I wonder how many were more posing for photos and not truly representative of how they looked while actually playing? One extreme example of this would be the Lucy photo.

    That was my feeble attempt at a joke.

    During the spring of 1952, I Love Lucy writers, Bob Carroll, Jr. and Madelyn Pugh, asked Lucy if she could play a musical instrument. Her answer: "No, but give me a week..."

    Madelyn Pugh, one of the writers for the show, recalls: As for Lucy playing the saxophone -- she was a writer's dream... No matter what we asked her to do -- ride a lawnmower, jump on a trampoline, walk on stilts -- she never said "No," just "Give me a few days to learn it."

    Evidently she was a complete beginner, but that embouchure could have fooled me.

    I was wondering the same thing about the Gwozdz picture, whether he's actually playing or just posing.

    Not feeble at all, but it served as an "extreme example" of the posed photo compared to a photo taken in the midst of a performance, in the heat of the action, so-to-speak. The one of 'Trane is an example at the opposite end of that comparison, as is the Sanborn photo, IMO. The Sax Quartet lies somewhere between these two extremes, especially the alto player.
