    Paul - Thanks for the heads up. It should be OK now as I deleted all of the sent ones.

    How about Plas?
    Here one a fellow SOTW member sent me of Plas Johnson on Bari.
    Sounds like it could easily have been his main instrument.

    That's fabulous! Exactly how you would expect Plas to sound on bari.

    Everyone has surely heard this, but it's his birthday!

    I just helped on the liner notes for a new Lars Gullin release, featuring Lee Konitz taking a couple solos on Bari!
    Check it out: http://www.freshsoundrecords.com/lee...-sessions.html

    Lars had a great sound.

    Don't forget Andrew Hadro, one of the best in NYC right now among the young cats. Here he is with my group last month:

    Thanks Bob! I didn't know that Lars' son was such a musician. Great sound and also a very personal approach to improve, I think.

    I heard him live playing on a street corner in Copenhagen during the annual jazz festival many years ago, so long that it seems like a different life. He just stood there and played wonderfully. However, it was not a pretty sight, as he obviously wasn't doing well. Not too long after, he was dead at age 44. He had a hard life.

    BTW, this is a wonderful thread. I have listened and learned a lot of new names thanks to the great contributions. Much appreciated!

    Lately, I have been listening to a lot of Lars Gullin, which has lead me to some really good "finds". Fredrik Lundin, mainly known as a tenor player, has a Lars Gullin tribute quintet with altoist Christina von Bulow called "Silhouette". Here is a link to a youtube video of the title track:



    From pictures which I have found, he appears to be playing a Buescher TrueTone bari and possibly a Berg mouthpiece. Lundin has a great sound on baritone, clearly influenced by Gullin.

    Frederick Lundin is mainly a tenor player as you state and recently also turned unto the G mezzo soprano. He is very much his own and started playing professionally at a very young age. I have seen and heard him at the Copenhagen Jazz festival when he was 18 or so doing his own thing, which pretty much defines him, uncompromisingly oblivious to the financial aspect. A True Tone Bari seems plausible probably because it has great sound and moneys were a likely concern. That won't hold him back. On tenor he's played a MKVII for decades and Denmark is even more MKVI asphyxiated than the US. Frederick Lundin is a great composer and had a hit of sorts by jazz standards with the album "Choose your Boots", which I wholeheartedly recommend.

    Yesterday, I found an interview with Lundin, probably related to "Silhouette" in which he mentions using an "Elkhart" baritone. Both Buescher and Conn stenciled horns under that brand, although I think it was ultimately acquired by Buescher. Based on pictures, Lundin's horn is clearly a True Tone stencil.

    brasscane - Thanks for the color. I'll definitely check out some of Lundin's other recordings.

    Speaking of Andrew Hadro, check out his playing along with Lee Konitz's solo on "I'll Remember April"..... in the same octave!!!!

    I see the Paul Williams YouTube clip I posted a few pages back has got lost in translation, so here's another one :
