to have Art Taylor mentioned in a conversation about my playing blows my mind ........the fact that his name came to your mind tells me there might just hope for a hack like me....hahaha
and that comp peice was something La Roca recommended ....you can tell I'm not completely comfortable with it and that I am reading it as well.......doesnt sound real natural....but it was just something for the audition
thanks again for checking it out and for your much appreciated constructive input
No problem, I hope that's what you were after... it's all pretty nitpicky/personal taste because what you're doing is fundamentally really strong. The BD sounds great even overrecorded like that-- makes me want to learn to play it like that for real...
Now I have to go listen to NOB&B-- I never got real deep into that record because I just wanted crushing McCoy stuff, and kind of put it away forever...
