Hal McKusick

A fine cool-toned altoist and an occasional clarinetist, Hal McKusick worked with the big bands of Les Brown, Woody Herman (1943), Boyd Raeburn (1944-1945), Alvino Rey (1946), Buddy Rich, and Claude Thornhill (1948-1949). In the 1950s, in addition to his work with Terry Gibbs and Elliot Lawrence, he was a busy and versatile studio musician. During 1955-1958, McKusick recorded nine albums of material as a leader for Jubilee, Bethlehem, Victor, Coral, New Jazz, Prestige, and Decca. Those small-group recordings, although basically cool bop, sometimes used very advanced arrangements, including charts by George Handy, Manny Albam, Gil Evans, Al Cohn, Jimmy Giuffre, and particularly George Russell. Hal McKusick died in April 2012 at the age of 87. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

How worry I am that I missed him during my youth! How much wonderful music we have, everyday!
To exude a fine and full tone across the choruses and not be overly flamboyant. These are those artists!

His tone sounds very much like Paul Desmond.
Jazz and studio work. A great life!
What a marvelous sound.
beautiful tone, really swinging alto, wonderful to listen to
the measure of the musician lies in whether he is able to convey 'it' to an audience...i n as much as improvisatio n and swing define jazz music,it don't mean a thing if it don't convey a thing! We need of a revival of this man's music...he reaches your soul---
