I love Tony's music. It was interesting to listen to this conversation, but he sounds a little cranky :)

Everybody over the age of 60 gets a little cranky now and then....(IMHO)

He is such an interesting and unique cat.
I don't believe (when he was in his prime) that any other human being (musician) has ever had more power and technique under his command, and yet because of the style of music that he played, and the venues where it was attended, he not only did not have an appropriate dressing room and facilities, but not even a private bathroom. Imagine how that would have gone over with most other "Maestros".

Tony was right on the money on the subject of dynamics . . .

I was watching this and getting off on it and then looked and realized that Jan (the fellow that interviewed Tony) had just posted it 79 minutes before. His intro about Tony's Volume I at the top is worth reading.

Great BAB video, I feel like the little kid on the tricycle in The Incredibles - that was totally wicked!
