Amazing technical skills like no other, but I never liked his sound. I wonder who makes his reeds now, cuz he never made his own throughout his career.

I attended a master class in the late 70's at which he took a dry reed off the demo piano, tweeted it a couple times, and proceeded to rip some licks from something like the Corigliano concerto, which had some of the fastest tonguing I'd ever heard that surely had to be double tonguing.

He blew away the audience with his casual technical brilliance.

Then later in the Q&A session, somebody asked "what's the best way to double tongue," to which he replied "Oh, I never double tongue."

uh-huh, right...LOL
