A friend of mine and I get into this argument all the time.
I say “it’s Sidney Bechet.”
He says “Artie Shaw”.
I then say “they are two different style musicians.”
He then scowls and says “Don’t you think I know that? We are talking about the instrument, not style nuances.”
He’s a stubborn Irishman so it’s no use having this type of discussion with him. What do you people think is the answer?
