Who is your favorite bone player?

Post by ttf_PsychedelicFuzz » Sat May 22, 2004 10:06 pm

Kai Winding...vastly underrated imho.

in person my first college teacher, Dave Butler's flexibility and mellow sound left a lasting impact on my notions of what jazz trombonists can and can't do.

and Ron Wilkins, for playing alto, tenor, bass, venturing up into the squeal register and blowing the multiphonics like it was nothing...and doing his best to convince me I could too.

Yeah, I forgot good 'ol Ron... probably because I see him on a regular basis  Image

He's convinced me I can squeal, but the multiphonics are coming slowly...

Jazz trombonists- there have been so many mentioned, all great- Lately my favorites would be Andy Martin and Scott Whitfield... if you haven't heard Scott look him up! He just moved to LA. I was fortunate enough to study with him for a while at UNF in Jacksonville- he does things on the horn I've never heard anybody do.

Classical trombonist- It was Christian Lindberg... I got to perform with him with the Southern Mississippi Wind Ensemble a few years ago- master technician, amazing. Then I heard Joe Alessi- no contest. Joe's musicality puts Christian down a few pegs, in my book, plus he understands jazz... I asked Christian if he ever played jazz and he looked at me like I was from Mars. Jazz is not THE ONLY kind of music, but so many classical players are afraid of it... Joe doesn't improvise on any recordings I've heard, but he does understand jazz style, as evidenced by the medley of tunes on his Slide Area CD and others.

I skimmed through most of the pages, and remembered a lot of players that I had forgotten.  So, first off: thanks everybody!

In thinking of mine, I had to think about those that literally made me stop what I was doing and listen.  So... here goes...

J.J. Johnson
Frank Rosolino
Fred Wesley
Carl Fontana
Albert Mangelsdorff
Urbie Green
Steve Davis
Josh Roseman
James Pankow

I keep thinking that there's more.  But these guys really bended an ear.

I'd have to say JJ, Kai, Frank Rosolino or Alessi.  Got to take a lesson with Alessi a couple of years ago.  Wonderful teacher as well, nice person too.

I have been learning a lot from Juan Pablo Torres, here in Miami. I like his original approach to playing and the creativity in his music. Love the fact that he is improving daily in conception and tone eventhough he is 58 years of age.

I would love to meet Alain Trudel. Also, I find Luis Bonilla to be a tremendous talent.

Quote from: "Jean-François"In Classical: Alain Trudel(I have his records and I saw him twice live. You have to see him live to understand how good this guy is...)

Him and Alistair Kay are the only trombone soloists I've heard so far, but as far as I can tell, Alain Trudel is not human.

Have to go with the overall Erling list, but I love different guys for different reasons . . . here goes in no particular order . . .

Trummy Young for guts

Jack Teagarden for personality and heart

Frank Rosolino just for fun

JJ for sound

Carl Fontana for technique

Dorsey for breath control and phrasing

J C Higginbotham for big big sound

Andy Martin for the most personal sound

Bob McChesney for being able to do that doodle tonguing thing

John Fedchock for the way he thinks about changes

Steve Turre for command of the horn

Bill Watrous for ballad playing

Slide H for that one lick he plays over and over again way up high

Jimmy Pankow because I played with him in high school

Audrey Morrison for being taken seriously and playing lead in the Chicago Jazz Ensemble

And finally Russ Phillips for not forsaking the tradition that goes back through his dad and on back to Teagarden, for playing so melodiously.

hmmm...

who doesn't like jj...
slide hampton - i'm a bass bonist so i like to hear guys solo on a big horn
fred wesley - fat, fat tone
douglas purviance - how he gets that sound out of a yamaha 613h is beyond me
steve turre - some of the nicest lines i've ever heard
david taylor - kind of an *** in person i've heard but he can sure blow. i love his avant-garde choice of literature
doug yeo - not my style really but his technique is flawless

and last but not least my teacher, john olsson. he never fails to blow my mind in almost every lesson i have with him. he's also a great teacher with the ability to help me break-down complex passages, concepts and techniques so i can wrap my mind around them and add them to my skill set.

I personally like Bill Watrous for his tone and amazing technique.  It's amazing.  I've been a fan of Alain Trudel for about two weeks ever since I saw him at MusicFest Canada, when he opened his portion of the concert with Flight Of The Bumblebee.  Ian McDougall is just great to listen to, and he's an excellent teacher.  

Two of my all time favorite players however are Buster Cooper and Hugh Fraser.  Buster Cooper is an amazing, underrated player.  I got a recording of Trombone Buster by the Ellington band, and it's one of my favorite recordings.  You can just hear the energy coming from him

Hugh Fraser is my musical idol.  He's a very charismatic person, and you can feel it in his playing as well.  His tone isn't that great, but he more than makes up for it with his playing style.  He's definetely a croud pleaser.  Another thing I love about Hugh is the style of his music that he writes.  Very new ideas, and I've never got sick of any of them.  The only writer who I might like more (I haven't decided) is Chris Tarry (a great canadian electric bass player).  I've worked with Hugh on several occasions, and it's just a great experience.

Quote from: "Dean Hubbard"
Rick Simerly

Thanks, Dean, it took until page 7 to get to this great trombonist who happens to be "local" for me. I've gotten to know Rick during the past year and WOW! What a great player, and what a class act!

He played down here in Asheville last week, and I just couldn't believe all that he's got going on. And he never got tired, never ran out of ideas, and during the course of the night actually sounded better at the end than at the beginning, as hard as that is to imagine based on how good he sounded at the beginning of the night.

Of course, some other great players have been mentioned, but none of them live around here. Their loss!

Bill Watrous-master balladeer-In my opinion Watrous has no peers in this area.

Don Lusher-Impeccable all round player.
Gordon Campbell-Beautiful sound, great lead trombone player all styles-1st trombone-BBC Big Band
                                1st trombone-John Wilson Orchestra
Ian McDougall-beautiful sound,great all round musician.

In no particular order-living or passed.

ZOMBIE THREAD!!!!!!  Image Image Image

Dormant since 2004, then three entries in the last few days.

Did not wade through all of it, but gotta say the choices I saw were disappointingly mainstream.  Please prove me wrong…

Allow me to throw a top ten, in no particular order…

Jimmy Knepper
Steve Turre
Robin Eubanks
Carl Fontana
Raul Da Souza
Jose Rodrigues
Slide Hampton
Lawrence Brown
Ray Anderson
Wycliffe Gordon

My main criterion - can you tell who it is, if you only hear a few notes, but also know that you'll hear some surprises over the course of your listening?

Ooops…top 12

Albert Mangelsdorff

Teddy Roderman.I was remiss in not including the late and very great Teddy Roderman in my previous list. He was considered one of North America's finest trombonists in his heyday-1950's through 1975.He never left Toronto, but had offers from Tommy Dorsey and many other famous aggregations of that era. Teddy's bio is on the Trombone Forum.

He should have gone national and maybe even international, but I understand why he didn't want to. With every ballad I play, I try to put one of his signature moves into it as a tribute.

I like George Roberts, JJ Johnson, Kai Winding, Wycliffe Gordon, and a bunch more I can't remember right now. It's a wide variety so I can noodle around with their tunes depending on what note range I want to focus on. It had been mostly George when I was playing one-valve-bass-'bone, but now that I'm on lead bone and a 3BF I'm listening to JJ quite a lot. I've even been learning his solo transcriptions.

It's really hard for me to just list one player, but I particularly like Carl Fontana during the late 60's early 70's when he was playing his Williams 6. I like the jazz party recordings - Blue Angel Jazz Club, the jazz party in Odessa album, WGJB/Dick Gibson, etc.. I like how when he was playing Dixieland/Trad Jazz he didn't try to change his style; he was still Carl! During that time period he also did the jazz for a sunday afternoon live recording w/ Rosolino which is just amazing....

Again, too many bone players to list here...

Today--Dan Barrett-beautiful sound,extremely musical and inventive,at ease in any style from dixieland to bop.
       John Allred-for the same reasons.

Yesterday. Urbie Green-The master. The trombonist's trombonist!
           Si Zentner-The most exciting trombonist I ever heard in person. As a trombone player-unbeatable. Si was a favorite of Al Grey, and many other black musicians.

I`m in a serious Carl Fontana period right now. I just bought 10 Live Cd`s and 2 Live DVD`s of Carl.
Watrous has always been a Fav.
I played for 16 years in a R&B/Soul/Classic rock Band and did some Chicago and I wrote ssome heavily Chicago influenced horn Parts, Jimmy Pankow has a place in my Heart
Kai Winding and Al Grey are 2 more that special places for me as I got to spend a day 1 on 1 with each of them

Currently my favorite trombonist is a young lady named Rita Payes.  She is a featured member of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band.
