Lovely. It looks to me that he has the m/p attached to the neck at quite a slant. Does he still do that?

EDIT: Just able to answer my own question by looking at the more recent Sanborn/Woods clip on youtube. Fascinating really. I mean if a student showed at at a lesson and set themselves up like either of those two i'd probably be getting ready to say "No, no, no.." Mind you, they do seem to manage fairly well.. :D ;)

For a good look at Phil during the save era, pick up the Jazz Icons DVD of Quincy Jones. It includes two QJ concerts in Europe and features Phil on two numbers, including "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set"... so pretty it brings tears to my eyes. A masterpiece.

Yeah, I noticed that slant. Look at his fingers, too--you can barely see them move, he keeps them so close.

That was nice, 10mfan, thanks for posting.

I caught him back when he wore the 'union suit' and had shorter hair than in that clip.:)

I've been watching that video recently. Since we have Youtube tags now here it is again.


This is one of Phil's greatest compositions and just beautifully put together. I love to play it myself and this particular arrangement is just beautiful.

The Alive And Well In Paris kills as well, but in a different way.

Man the European Rhythm Machine...why aren't all those albums readily available?

Phil looks like Jack Nicholson with those shades. Lovelovelove him!!! I wish he had made a record with either Getz or Rollins back then.

You know it just occurred to me, that I am hijacking this thread. Does that make me a jerk?:? sorry

He did: with Sonny, early in 1966. But it's not really what you mean: he played on Sonny's Alfie soundtrack, with the horns behind Sonny. The chart's were arranged by Quincy, and since Phil was Quincy's go-to alto guy, that's probably why he was there.

It's a good album, but one does wish Sonny and Phil could've gotten something going on....
