    Just beautiful, and a gorgeous tone from Zoller. Very rare to see Oscar Pettiford in action.

    You might need to turn your volume up...

    He's a monster cello player too, check out the recordings w Tal Farlow if you haven't heard him.

    Great video, I missed this thread before.

    Here’s Oscar and Coleman Hawkins in a film called The Crimson Canary (looks like Howard McGhee on trumpet):

    Yeah, Hawk was something else too, one of the few to adapt to several styles over the yrs, practically invented modern saxophone playing, transitioned to bop (see above clip), was still going strong in the 60s, check out his Impulse lps, even played bossa, Desifinado great record w Howie Collins and Barry Galbraith guitar, a fave from '62

    That Rhythm Chief pickup on Zoller's guitar does sound very good. I'm just about convinced that the DeArmond Rhythm Chief is the best pickup made, by anyone. I love mine, reissue that it is.

    Attila told me that his favorite guitarist to play duets with was Jimmy Raney.
    And Oscar Pettiford was Attila's favorite bass player; he even wrote a song dedicated to him: "Homage to O.P."
    (He also wrote a song to honor Kenny Burrell: "KB.")
