: : : Go John Faddis!
: : : Mickster
: : Hey! Do you know Jon?!? That's the guy I'm tryin' to sound like!
: : If you see him before I do tell him I said hello! Quinn
: Quinn, I'm very into Jazz(not just jazz bass playing) and horn players are very close to my heart. I don't know Jon personally, but he plays here in New York
: a lot, although I haven't seen him yet. This is the guy carrying on in Dizzy's
: place. I still can't find his CD "Hornucopia", I think it's out of print. I've
: been looking for it for a while now. I have another of his CDs, though I can't
: recall the name right now(I'm at work) I bet you like Claudio Roditti as well.
: He's one of my favorites. Moving on to sax, my main guys are: Paquito D'rivera,
: Boney James, and Tom Scott to name a few. I almost bought a Selmer Mk six about
: twenty years ago, but, blew the money on a woman. Ah the regrets. To me Jazz is
: the ultimate form of music, and horns, whatever type, are the ultimate expression of Jazz.Horn players are # 1 in my book.
: Good talking to a fellow horn afficionado,
I'm not familiar with the guys you mentioned. But since you mentioned sax, I play that as well.
My personal favorites are Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly and Michael Brecker. I think if you go to
excite.com then click music, type Faddis's name under the search, then you should find all of his
cd's. Take care
