Guenne instead of Lennie Niehaus plays the Blues and tries his Meyer and clones on his Super 20 :):

Theo Wanne NY Bros. 6 Rigotti 3med (awful)
Theo Wanne NY Bros. 6 Rigotti 3 strong
Phil Engleman refaced Stock Meyer 6 Rigotti 3med
Woodstone Traditional Jazz 6 Rigotti 3med

Have fun,
Guenne

I don't know what the different equipment are that you are using, but they all sound great to me. I prefer the last one, Woodstone.

Never did a Blues in D concert before, so here are some new clips I just recorded with free YouTube backings. As usual fully improvised theme's and solo's. Used the backings this time to compare a metal 50's Otto Link Florida no USA 10* mouthpece and a HR 80's Otto Link Tone Edge 10* mouthpiece, together with two different reeds (Plasticover 2 and Rico Royal 2).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Compare two reeds on the same mouthpiece:

- 'Blues in D' - medium (Florida no USA 10* - Plasticover 2) shuffle blues style:
Blues in D - medium (FL no USA 10* - PL2) shuffle by mrpeebee

- 'Blues in D' - medium (Florida no USA 10* - Rico Royal 2) swamp blues style:
Blues in D - medium (FL no USA 10* - RR2) swamp by mrpeebee
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Compare two mouthpieces on the same reed:

- 'Blues in D' - medium (Florida no USA 10* - Rico Royal 2) swamp blues style:
Blues in D - medium (FL no USA 10* - RR2) swamp by mrpeebee

- 'Blues in D' - medium (Tone Edge 10* - Rico Royal 2) jazz blues style:
Blues in D - medium (Tone Edge 10* - RR2) jazz by mrpeebee
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As expected:
- the HR Tone Edge sounds darker compared to the metal Florida and
- the Rico Royal reed sounds darker compared to the Plasticover

I prefer the the Floirda / Plasticover combination.

Also did a recording with four reeds on the same mouthpiece, will post that one later this month.
I downloaded your shuffle .. gonna study it.

It's like when you fall asleep with the radio on and you think you're psychic because you knew about the earthquake before you heard the news:eek:

I woke up one morning with the riff from Billie Jean rattling round my head. Started playing it. Wow! Aren't I clever? Then I put on the radio and there it was. My first reaction was that I'd been robbed.:mad:

What's better is when you mis-remember it, and come up with something different. Then you can call it your own. This could be the basis of most compositions... :p
