OK, he still doesn't share his techniques, but I still found the better
than 6 pages of interview with Rudy Van Gelder in the Sept.Oct issue of
Tape Op pretty cool reading. I don't think I ever seen him talk for 6 pages
anywhere! Nice article on drum tuning too. Speaking of which,
here's a link for Prof. Sound's Drum Tuning Bible.

Indeed. I would have liked to have heard specifics on his setup for
recording, geez, any number of the classics (lately the Village Vanguard
box set has been in heavy rotation here). Of course, the people on the
business end of the mic were most of the sound, but beyond that I'm
really impressed with the sound of these recordings made under less than
optimal conditions ("Chasin' the Trane," for instance).

Oh, and great Monk/Miles story, too.

Well, we'll hear him talk about those techniques about the same time the
moon falls out of the sky, I fear. I have a theory about that: I don't think
he really has any secret techniques. He's just Rudy Van Gelder, has a sound
he wants to hear, and moves the microphones to the places that get that
sound.

In other words, he doesn't have secrets; he *is* the secret.

By the way, there's also a great interview with my ace-number-one favorite
drummer in there, Dave Mattacks.

Peace,
Paul

I know Rudy Van Gelder. And you, Will, are no Rudy Van Gelder.

Yeah, Rudy said, he would share some of his secrets with me at his funeral,
but I'm not holding my breath.

You know what Yogi Berra said:

"You have to go to people's funerals, or else they won't come to yours"

Mattacks kicks butt.

I think Mattacks and Fairport are more of a 'stroke butt' kind of band.

Yogi always says the right thing.
Played good too!
I never really liked Yoo Hoo though.
To be quite honest, just the thought of that stuff, gives me the chills and
a case of "Fat Tongue" simultaneously.

Yeah, I would've taken Quik over Yoo Hoo.

Nowadays, my Doctor says I should drink water. Boring!
