Here's some of the pieces we recorded live in the studio with a studio audience. Modeled loosely after Bob Reynold's Guitar Album. One of the most challenging performances of my life. One Take - No Edits. Good and Bad - it's in there.

Ballad "Friends in Belgium"

More Contemporary "Zero Gravity" This is the Title track of the latest CD

Bop-ish Tune "Post Republic Bop"

With our Singer "Who Will Comfort Me" - She's great and easy on the eyes.

Love to hear positive comments. Negative ones not so much. :)

Wow!!!! It sounds great Tony. I have not heard you in quite a few years now. I really like how you play! The group and singer are fantastic. Nice choice of tunes. I also particularly like the choice of having a guitarist instead of a piano player. The group sound has a very nice transparency that comes from working with a guitar player. Is everybody from Syracuse?

Everyone is from Syracuse. The Guitar and Bass player have had the group for 20+ years kicking around with different horn players and singers. I've been a sub for them on and off but the past year have been more of a regular.

Very nice,Tony.
Love your tone.
Are you still on the Tenney Slant here?

Kinda reminds me of a Yellowjackets thing.

I switched from my original Tenney Slant Marked 7 but measured more like a 6* about a year ago to my Back-Up Tenney Slant marked 7 but measures more like a large 8. At some point, someone tampered with these pieces but still my favorite Slant type pieces.

Gotta say, I didn't know James Comey plays drums. Bwahahaha!!!

Just curious, are you guessing that these have been tampered with or do you actually know that? I'm only asking because I'm under the impression that Doc's pieces tended to measure small - not sure how this explains the one measuring closer to an 8 though...

I have 3 all marked 7 but measure differently.

.096 Definitely altered - Terrible facing but I loved playing on it for years.

.100 Likely original (Back-up at the moment)

.112 My new main piece - awesome facing may have been reworked by Tenney or one of his protégés.

They all play very similar. What I think makes these pieces is the baffle and chambers.
