      Impossible the guy was a giant his skill, knowledge and craftsmanship have been equaled to different points but never bettered. I listen to something like this and you think 1957 wow, just wow. YouTube wont give the same experience you get from playing something this guy was involved with on a decent set up. Why Mingus would never work with him I don't know the guy was a genius and I don't say that lightly:

        Mingus apparently said: "...Rudy van Gelder makes those kind of records. He tries to change people’s tones. I’ve seen him do it; I’ve seen him do it; I’ve seen him take Thad Jones and the way he sets him up at the mike, he can change the whole sound. That’s why I never go to him; he ruined my bass sound...."
        "White paper inner sleeve is pristine ..."
