Anyone who has ever studied with Chester Schmitz will probably agree with me that he is the best ever. You can compare the recordings of Gene, Floyd and Chester on Jabba the Hutt, I know this is only one piece but it will give you a basic idea of sound, style, technique and most of all musicianship, Chester Schmitz has know weaknesses and can do more than anyone I have ever heard or studied with. If you can also get their recordings of their live performances of the V. Wiliams or the J. Williams (remember the J. Williams was written for him) you will see.
