Also been enjoying a version of Take 5 by the New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble, with some really nice Tenor Sax playing by Freddie Reiter - on their myspace site. Makes Tenor Sax seem almost worthwhile.;}

Kind regards

Well us guys who was brought up roun' Brixton - first home of UK ska - would love to come, but it's a bit far, know what I mean, man? Ska an' stuff used to come poundin' out a record shop down there called Desmond's Hip City in the 60's. What a place. Wicked or what. :mrcool
