Check out Lee Fish. I've always been struck by his tastefulness and subtlety.I'd also like to add that while the entire rhythm section plays well, I'm especially impressed with Daniel Humair. Dex goes on for a while in his solo, and Daniel Humair on drums keeps it interesting the entire time. So many jazz drummers (especially today's generation) think they have to be loud or fast to be interesting, and they fail to realize how important it is to keep the soloists sound and ideas fresh and interesting on the background support.
Early Dukoff 'Hollywood' maybe? Anyway, his horn/mpce was stolen, and in my view he never sounded the same. Still great, but just not the same on a Selmer and whatever mpce. This video has meant a lot to me too, even though I'm not a bop guy - more of a commercial player, but there is no denying the awesome beauty of his sound and mentality during this period. I would love to be surprised some night to hear some of this style easing into my stuff. I was thinking of selling a 'The Martin Tenor' I've had for a few years until I realized that with the right mpce I can hear some of that deep Conn tone out of it. This bears further study!I have been using and abusing this video... man, it doesn't get any better than this. I love Dexter. Hey Mark, just outof curiosity, what kind of Dukoff did Dex used around this time? Tip size? etc?
Definitely U67s. Just got one and OH MAN!! As far as the recording, and maybe I'm biased, but that's 50% of the sound right there. What a wonderful mic!!Nice bunch of U87s. (may be some 67s actually)
