Respect- I add- Earl Bostic, Clifford Scott, Illinois Jacquet and Ben Webster- in a similar vein....

They are all my hero's!

Bostic is the King!

From that era we could go on and on...
Well why not?

Right now Im listening to Willis Jackson.
Make my day with Big Al Sears, Sam the man Taylor, Sam Butera, Plas Johnson,
and the baddest of them all Big Jay McNeely.

But I also love Zoot.

Currently feeling a strong desire to jump on EuroStar and go to See Big Jay McNeely in Paris next month...

Paris is too far away for me. Still a great player. Sax Gordon did a gig with him for some yeras ago. He told me about Big Jays capacity.

Talking about R&B honkers we shouldn't forget Freddie "Taxi Mitch" Mitchell and Noble "Thin Man" Watts.
