I'm currently listening to a cut from Tea for Two with Walt Wieskopf and Andy Fusco and all I gotta say is Walt's a freakin bad mother trucker!

Everythings so clear and precise. Andy Fusco's also soundin' really good. Granted his articulation can sound a little lazy and fumbly but thats what makes it sooo good.

Do you guys know of any other recordings that I can find of these two or any stories about them? Either together or seperate.

I know this is unrelated but do any of you guys have any stories about Pepper Adams aswell?

Both Weiskopf and Fusco play great. Google for wEIskopf and you'll find some great CDs. I have one or two with Walt playing with Jim Snidero. He's also on some Steeplechase CDs. He probably sounds so clear and precise because he nows exactly what he's doing, see his several method books.

I knew Walt when he was an alto player and had hair! He has always been a good player and a good guy. I was told he is on some Steely Dan stuff on youtube.

walt has a decent amount of material on criss cross- check out 'sight to sound' if you get a chance...it's a suite he composed/arranged written for many of the great painters of the world...one of my favorites of his, and i have most of his criss cross albums. 'man of many colors' is excellent al well, as are the rest of his recordings but those are probably my two favorites. peace-mike

I don't know when he switched to tenor, but his roommate in Brooklyn was a good tenor player named Frank Griffith, who lives in England now.
