  • Fabulous Interview With Roy Dunann!!!

    Done a decade and a half ago. The purity of Roy's recordings continue to improve the better one's system gets. Conrad delves into the simplicity of DuNann's recordings--many the equal of RVG--from the mikes to the tape deck to down to the mixer to the "console." Another big part of the equation was Roy's work with Howard Holzer.

    Of course Way Out West is a universal fave (well with the exception of one person) but what are some members other fave Contemporary releases?
    I don't remember the year, but I remember the moment when I first became intensely curious about Roy DuNann. It must have been about 1975, right after I moved to Seattle. I bought a Sonny Rollins LP called Way Out West, took it home, cued it up on my Thorens turntable, dropped the tonearm, and suddenly I was in a room with Rollins and Shelly Manne and Ray Brown. It was a shipping room with records stacked on shelves all around the musicians, but I wouldn't know that until many years later.
