Re: Classical Players u DONT LIKE
I know that it will probably go against the cardinal rule, but I cant stand listening to Marcel Mule. It seems like he played some songs as fast as he could, as if he was showing his technical skills more than expressing what the music really was. His vibrato(which has brought up much controversy in this site) too me is way to controlled. Vibrato is an expressive skill to be used oddly enough, in an expressive way. There is to be different depth and speed to vibrato according to the music it is played with, but it was the exact same with him no matter what, and he obviously couldnt understand the importance of a good strait tone. In all the recordings Ive heard he couldnt play any note shorter than eigth note w/o vibrato. That gets really annoying after awhile too. So to me Marcel Mule was just not as good as everyone says, yes he ushered in classical saxophone, but he is not the greatest saxophonist. Maybe someone like Joe Lulloff or Don Sinta, those are probably the 2 greatest Classical saxophonist today(only in my opinion, in case someone wants to yell at me). And there are so many other greats, but thats not the topic.
