I saw Reid Anderson play a duet concert with tenor-player Bill McHenry this weekend. The show was in an 80-seat hall with neither player using any amplification. Anderson's sound was really full and his musicality was impressive. His intonation was solid -- it can't be easy to concertize on a borrowed instrument, but he sounded fine. He played one of his compositions as a bass solo, and it had enormous emotional range. On the nit-picky side, Anderson's left hand had a bit of "floppy fingers" that impeded ideal vibrato control. Nice fella, and a musician I'd be happy to see again. As for McHenry -- interesting player! His music reflects much successful work and a happy place. Big, full, warm tenor sound, good intonation and truly incredible dynamic control in all registers. He's a very melodic player -- picture Paul Desmond playing free improv on tenor and you're in the ballpark. If either of these guys comes your way, don't hesitate.
