    OMG!! I always thought Clyde Mccoy was a little too commercial for my liking. Shame on me! Listen to his incredible and very original version of Basin Street Blues. What a sound!!

    YouTube- BASIN STREET BLUES by Clyde McCoy Vogue Picture Disc R707 1946

    Assuming this is "The Real McCoy". And I have heard he was a direct desendant of the famous McCoys of Tennessee!

    A pixie mute tends to kill my horn below G so I use a harmon mute and it works fine.

    Amazing sound, like the trumpet is talking in baby talk. . . .. very cool. . .. like when Steve Vai played "Passion and Warfare."
