Sean heads can be worked on. Your improv is coming on really well. You can hear the work you have been putting in. Sounded very good..

There are good ideas, I also like your "hollow" tone, sometimes your phrasing reminds me some R&B players of the past.
Good Wade, I think you're on the right track.

Thanks, I've been really working lately to get that hollow sound. Joshua Redman has the most recognizable version of this IMO.

This just goes to show how difficult it is to describe a sound in a way that means something to other people...

Of all the words that spring to mind when this guy plays, hollow isn't one of them.


I don't hear footballs or dead trees or skulls or bubbles or empty rooms or shells. I hear full and rich and effervescent and strong and round and vocal and solid and mellow.

Or maybe my dictionary is out of date.

I agree again,simple way i think of it is hollow = big empty void,no depth,no core,no warmth. Mr Redman who is in my top 3 players = Very fat core,rich,depth,thick like treacle sound.Go figure.

See thats funny to me.

I was the one to mention Redman and he to me has a very hollow, cavernous sound. I think of Hollow as Open, Wide, Deep. His is fairly warm. Where as I like a colder, drier sound.

A lot of guys refer to those old BA Selmers as having a "Hollow Log" type tone. And I agree.
