I am now in L.A and in the last two days I hear two huge players who are on this site. I have also heard CDs of a few other players who are on this site, which are unreal. I propose that we start some kind of donation trust fund thing, get a recording studio to put up the time free, get many of us to play accompaniment and then get some of these unrecorded soloist types to record over what we do. It could take years to put together, but would it not be great to have a CD of the great soloists that are on V.Com
Just yesterday I heard Holland and Boucher play duets in a small club in Hollywood. What those guys did was unreal and they had not ever rehearsed! I thought I was listening to Perlman and Zukerman, or better!
Then there is the tape of Emil C. that was sent to me....he sounds unreal on it.
And then there is D. Jenson, who to me is the best player on the planet.
How could many of us gather together to do this. A lot of planning would be needed so someone would need to champion it. Maybe it could be done at the next VSA thing.
How many of you who can really play would be willing to give up some of your time to do this? I would, how bout you?
