That really is some amazing sax playing.Funny thing is a comment about three down simply says .....The Best......how ludicrous is that.......John
Maybe we could use it at tune of the month...perhaps you would like to kick this one off John?

Not me Fraser EYE NO NARTHEENG but I don't think it is ludicrous that someone might consider Earl Bostic the best player of all time after listening to that,the chances of me getting my fingers round that remind me of another comment on one of these pieces where an amateur sax blower commented that after listening to that he realised there was no hope for him so he threw his sax in the river and cried himself to sleep,though I would never contemplate such a thing myself but I certainly know my limitations, I'm three years in to getting my fingers round The Dream and it's only just starting to come together, why do you think I never post in BOTM just got to pop off and get a hanky after trimmy's no 1 baby song ....John

Mr PC, Mr Coltrane, live performance, first jazz album wot I bought, can't remember the name, took me many repeat plays to get it and it wasn't until I heard the original version did I recognise the melody that appears only at the end of this version

I think of it as chaos being slowly and cleverly reined in and brought to a semblance of order

It's always been Elton Dean's 2nd soprano solo on Slightly All The Time (Soft Machine - Third).
Just listened to this for the first time for ages and have to agree it's a great solo thanks Nick

I noticed that some were posting non sax stuff. One of the first records that turned my head and has stood the test of time was this. Very appropriate for a bare soul thread.

I didn't even know it was a great jazz pianist. It's so danceable and full of life and optimism. How he got there from this baffles me

i don't think it's dated one bit, and that horn section seems to have got better.

Let's jump in late with this from Stan Getz's "Focus" album.. As a side point all Stan's part was improvised.

BUT as I am also a singer I have to add Stevie Wonder singing "Lately", listen and you will see why. here is the original. i love his voice around 3:20
Lately, original version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJqXpbDAQq0&feature=player_detailpage
Lately, live in London (30 years later, wow): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53JPcY3l63E&feature=player_detailpage
I have to admit that Srevie Wonder comes near the bottom of my favourite performers (If I ever hear "Happy Birthday To Ya" again....aaargh) but I do agree that "Lately" is a lovely tune, well sung.

I wonder if anyone has the dots for this on alto?
I tried it by ear and had a bit of fumbling in the middle ... but it does sound good on alto, even when I play it :)

I'd be hard pressed to think of a particular, single favourite ... it would need to be something that's not to difficult for me to play!

If my soul is at stake it would have to be 'Sympathy for the Devil'.
