THE SEARCH FOR A GOOD REED, TWICE

The quest, as enacted by reedman SMIGLY (thanks to Allen Mezquida, whose nimble playing is heard on the soundtrack):

You can find more SMIGLY here or here.

The simpler answer, at least in 1957 terms, although any musician knows that buying a box of the reeds Lucky Thompson plays will not automatically result in your sounding like Lucky . . . but the search continues!

VIBRATOR REEDS

May your happiness increase!

    I think Smigly may be named after the Polish general Smigly Rydz (pronounced kinda like “reeds”).

  3. Hi Paul. Smigly is NOT named after the Polish general Smigly Rydz. Thanks for watching though. Much appreciated!
