Just discovered Al Galadoro

Hi all,
I have just been listening to David Mellors Sunday programme from last weekend and he was playing various arrangements of Gershwin's music. He played a recording of 93 year old Galadoro playing his interpretation of Summertime. Quite blew me away. I had never heard of him before so to hear an alo sax played in such a thoughtful, gentle yet so musical a way was quite an ear opener for me. His transcription of Summertime was right up my street for the type of jazz I love to hear and can only dream about playing. Next task is to buy the album and attempt to transcribe the sax part.
Go to classic FM find, sit back and enjoy.
