Charlie Vernon.

Simply an amazing model of sound, whether you are a tenor or bass player. Heck, any instrumentalist can get something from his sound!

Listening to records for sound is good. Listening to a concert is even better. Sitting in a small room with someone playing in your face is best.

Orchestral tenor players -
Dudley Bright (LSO, previously in the Philharmonia Orchestra)
Derek James (Previously of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra)
Arthur Wilson (Dudley Bright's predecessor in the Philharmonia)
Henry Hardy (particularly while at the Royal Scottish National Orchestra)

Orchestral bass players -
Ray Premru, my personal favourite
Bob Hughes (LSO)

Jazz/commercial trombonists -
Frank Rosolino
Dick Nash
George Roberts

Being a fellow bass player, Ray Premru's playing has the most influence on me. However, there are aspects of others listed above that I draw on in other situations. For example, Henry Hardy and Derek James were terrifically exciting players, while Arthur Wilson always played with a lovely refinement and elegance. When playing jazz or lighter styles of music, I like Frank Rosolino's vibrato and Dick Nash's smoothness.

Just goes to show that it's nice to have a great sound AND know what to do with it, just like George Roberts said.

Yours,
Chris

Oooops, just noticed that the thread ask for LIVING players.

Ray Premru and Frank Rosolino are sadly no longer with us, though their recorded legacies live on. I'm not sure if Dick Nash is still playing, retired or deceased.

Yours,
Chris

Only live listening should count.....you have to REALLY hear a sound.
I'll second Derek James....I heard him in the LPO when I was a student, and was lucky enough to work with him a couple of times in the Royal Philharmonic.....Just stunning in every way.
Denis Wick.....playing at piano in Mahler two....magic.
Bill Reichenbach......velvet from two feet away.
Ben van Dijk.....THE orchestra sound.
Bob Hughes....CLASSIC bassbone.
Dave Taylor....LOTS of sounds.
Mark Nightingale....personal sounds.
So many more...

Some great players there. I would also like to add John Iveson and Chris Mowat. Both players with fantastic sounds and great musicians into the bargain.

The principal with the Milwaukee Symphony, Megumi Kanda, has a spectacular sound.  She has a recoring out, the sad thing is she tries to play When the Saints go Marching In with awful results.  DO NOT listen to her for jazz.....  Spectacular classical player though.

Absolutely. When he plays, it is like having a nice, warm blanket over you!
