I've just heard some Rusty Bryant on a compilation album I bought from eMusic: "Giants of the Blues and Funk Tenor Sax": http://www.emusic.com/album/Various...And-Funk-Tenor-Sax-MP3-Download/10591958.html

There's lots of great stuff on the album, but the standout player for me is Rusty Bryant. Sort of in a Stanley Turrentine vein, but he played a range of styles from Rock & Roll, through to funk and soul.

For a taste of his playing try:
"Soul Liberation" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBu1DDzANoM

"Fire Eater" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGoRusmVCTk

"Cold Duck Time" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bRYSBJPk9E

Enjoy !

In a similar vein - Gene Ammons.

I'm sitting here desperately trying to swot-up for an exam in Sustainability (yawn) tomorrow with him funking away on Spotify in the background. Excellent stuff.

Oooh, this brings back memories, somewhere I have a cassette tape of Rusty Bryant, storming stuff.

Thanks for reminding me.

Worth a trip to the loft to find the cassettes and a cassette player.

Thanks for the intro. Never heard of him before. Am sitting at home sick, feeling sorry for myself - and this is a wonderful tonic!

In the early 70's I mentioned to a workmate that I had played sax in a soul and blues band. He said he had a great rock sax record and lent me a 10inch LP. Never previously heard of Rusty - but yes, it had some great tracks on it. I think he said at one time he played with Bill Haley but I can't honestly remember.
