: : : 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,
Since you mentioned sax, I play that as well. My personal favorites are Coltrane, Cannonball Adderly
and Michael Brecker. If you go to excite.com, click under music and enter Faddis's name under search,
you should be able to find all of his works.I believe that the bass players are the heartbeat of jazz.
I just wanna learn how to give life!
