T: Urbie Green, Bill Watrous, Carl Fontana, Slide Hampton, Gordon Campbell

B: Lately whenever I like something enough to look up who's playing, it's one of two people - if it's the Classic Bass Trombone Noise, Paul Faulise, and in more modern contexts, Douglas Purviance. Beyond that, rotary tuba meets bowed double bass - a harmonically chonky mid-centric sound that comes and finds you (and knows what you did last summer)

Jazz tenor - Dave Steinmeyer
Commercial bass - Phil Teele
Classical tenor - Christian Lindberg
Classical bass - Ed Kleinhammer

If I had to narrow down… it’s really a combination of many… some have better high or low ranges… some scream while playing lead, while others are ultra melodic and silky when blowing a ballad.

Urbie, Knepper, Priester, Kai, Pankow, Alessi, and Shearer ALL huge influences on my sound concept.

For bass… Reichenbach, Vernon, Roberts, and Marty Harrell

Randy Purcell!

He sure did have a big sound, with a lot of musical technique and exquisite control!



I wish there was some vinyl!
That's some lovely playing. However, I'm pretty sure the sound video (quoted above) is Jiggs Whigham, not Randy Purcell.

For sackbut, most importantly my long-time teacher Catherine Motuz, as well as Simen van Mechelen and some elements of Adam Woolf's playing.
Catherine Motuz! How nice to hear that.

I went to school with Catherine. We played some sackbut together, very briefly, and then she started getting hired to play early music more and more and sort of disappeared (that's what success does, I guess!).

If you're still in touch, please say hello.

As swedish I can say- Christian Lindberg. He has interesting variations of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (https://musescore.com/user/197979/scores/2127576). Enjoy to play it from time to time.

Michel Becquet.
The adagio of Leopold Mozart, played on tenor (I asked him once, he said he played it on a Bach 42)…
The most beautiful tone I’ve ever heard.

That is probably the last thing Joe is known for lol!

He's certainly better at it than most trombonists sitting in an orchestra!

That solo was a riot. He was stumbling around until she showed him the "magic button" (Bb/F valve). Once he had that down he was off to the races. :good:
