By that time it was unusual enough not to have a band made up mostly of New Yorkers. :cat:And a BUNCH of Boston guys playing in that band.. Kenny Wenzel and Phil Wilson on bones, Danny Nolan and Paul Fontaine in the tpt. section. Wasn't Nat Pierce also from New England as well?
Is it this one?.....There is a Cd on Red records
from Italy..where he plays " Inner Urge"
so amazing...so burning....it might
be the best version of the tune ever......
I've owned and played all four models and my take is the Connquerors aren't any slower in action.10M's are the fastest tenors on the planet--it's to do with the key cup to hinge leverage. If you look closely you will notice how the key arms actually follow the contour radius of the body tube. Most other horns feel like typewriters in comparison. Combined with long springs and the (in)famous locking pivot screws the keywork can be set up like 'greased lightening' 6M's work on the same principle. I've often wondered if the extra keywork and adjustments to be found on Conquerer's (26m ,30m) slowed the action down somewhat compared with their 'lesser brethren' so few people bought them--to the point they were discontinued.
