The song may or may not be your kind of thing but check out Mr Marsalis, especially the change of key at 2:22 - masterly. He has the best soprano sound I have ever heard. In fact I realised the other day that the only record I still listen to from when I was 16 (now 41...) is Dream of the Blue Turtles, Sting - principally because of Branford's playing. I went to see Sting in France years ago - at that point I was not into jazz and didn't play sax - so I didn't pay much attention to his "backing band" - what a missed opportunity to see Marsalis, Kirkland, Hakim and Jones doing their thing. Oh well.
