Steve and I did Harry Connick Jr.'s gig together for a minute, (he was subbing for Ned Goold, I was there for Weldon), and I remember that horn, it looked like it had been through the wash a few times. He talked about Gonsalves a lot, I always thought he sounded a little like Lucky Thompson as well. As far as recording goes, I think he has a couple of discs on Steeplechase, besides being on Neal Caine's last CD.BarrySachs said:Ever since I met him he played the same set-up. 1970's era Selmer made Buescher "Aristocrat" (essentially a Bundy) with some kind of Morgan HR mouthpiece with a metal band on the shank, and a very hard reed.
I don't think he's recorded much. He appears on a Marcus Printup CD from the mid 90s. That's about it as far as I know.
Just checked him out in 'Night And Day': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRk6_EJy4d4
Great player .
He sounds a lot like Paul Gonsalves, but softer (more muffled) and with less power then Paul.
Here is Paul in the same number (his solo starts at 1:20): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StGHups0Mqc
