Wyatt Ruther was
for years a regular on East Coast recording sessions. Having recorded with just
about everyone from Errol Garner to Count Basie.
He was also one of New York City's finest music copyist. I learned the New York
style of copying from him, where the music writing pen, held as the picture
depicts, --- never leaves the paper. I already new the "Quill" or West
Coast style of music copying. With this specialty, I became a Musician's Union
Copyist adept in both skills. Not only was this financially rewarding, it also
gave a chance to study the greatest commercial scores of the day. My Music
Copyist number was A -726 Local 6.
