Overlooked Altos

234 posts in this topic

Okay, I know all about the stigma that the alto has for some. A lot of alto players don't get talked about much, some deservedly so.

Here's a guy that should be talked about though: T. K. Blue, or Talib Kibwe if you will. Long a musical director/frontliner for Randy Weston, and also a leader in his own right. The man can PLAY!

Here is a picture of Dave Schildkraut' latest .... It is VERY disappointing to say the least ... It sounds as if he is wading through molasses ....

well - I produced and released that Schildkraut CD - I recorded it live in New Haven 1979 - I think he plays quite brilliantly - I'm willing, in the interests of argument, to send it to anyone here for cost and let them judge for themselves - assuming this does not violate any commercial rules here - let me know if you are interested -
