    A vote from Holland, for my favourite Doc. Number 121, you're way up the lead. I don't know any of the bands, but I'm confident you will sound the best. I'ld love to hear some.

    It is loose slotting, but if you can tame it, it is that loose slotting that gives it the versitility to add depth and dimension to the sound. When I get our recent CD from the recording session last week, I will post for you one of our originals Alyiah. I play this on the Committee, bend many notes, and try to channel Lee Morgan in some of my lines.

    It is interesting that you do note this characteristic. On another post requesting recommedation for Jazz Method books, I mentioned "The art of Jazz Trumpet" by John McNeil, were he has a section on the Martin Committee in his methods book that addresses your perspective: "The downside of the Martin Committee is that one pays for flexibiity of tone and execution with questionable intonation. Since notes on a vintage Committee are not slotted to the degre one finds on a Bach or Benge, the player has to compensate extensively in order to play the horn in tune. Because the sound of the Committee is fairly unique, it can be difficult to blend within a trumpet section. The trumpet section in one of Woody Herman's bands once solved this problem by having the entire section play Committees."
