Ever seen or played a Menza mouthpiece? The opposite of a Tonalin.Who was it whose tenor Ben Webster grabbed with the words "Man, the horn's not supposed to sound that fast"?
On a Tonalin no less.
That's definitely Norrbotten.
The tenor soloist at 1:56 is Lew Tabackin .
Ha !Thanks! That’s 100% Tabackin, and since Lew was also moonlighting in Dick Cavett’s house band around this time, Menza chaired in the TSB after him(?). Just didn’t know if Menza ever sported a fuller head of hair back in the day and/or he ever grew out a James Harden style beard.
