Simply great music. Thanks. BTW the guitar player is Rune Gustafsson.
Beautiful-- thank you!
What a treat. Thanks!
Red Mitchell is just incredible. How do you get that relaxed and creative?
Typical, gorgeous Red......Thanks Jay!
Look how high up on the f-board Red's right hand is.... and it looks like he uses ALL the fingers sometimes. Wow.
You don't see it so much on this clip (the other ones posted the other day showed it better), but his thumb doesn't hook around the FB like we use, but sits just behind the low string. I tried this thinking i'd have greater mobility but found that I seem to use the E and A strings too often and it affects my tone on these. From what I can see Red uses the top three strings much more, with much vertical shifting. I guess this is a difference playing in 5ths. My thumb is back hooked around the ebony ...
Especially on the videos with Clark Terry, he really likes to strum the chords and put a little bite into them.
Don't forget that low string is a C.
Red wrote a tune called "One Long String" This concept is that if there could be just one long string, it would be ONE tonal quality....no difference if you had to switch strings.
