    Pharaoh Sanders last album is one for the ages.

    This may not be true of every jazzer, but a lot of sax players sure put out great work not too long before they passed.

    I've just been listening to Stan Tracy's Under Milk Wood on cd.

    Bobby Wellins on Sax. Another great tone. I saw him a few times live too.

    Okay, here’s the deal. I too had already bought that CD because the local jazz station seemed to play Georgia once every hour. In 1992 Gerald Albright came to town with his band to Seattle’s Jazz Alley for a 6 night gig. And Gerald actually performed many straight ahead charts on that gig. But don’t you know that he was so excellent that I came back a 2nd and 3rd night bringing several people in tow to hear him. I had never heard a tenor or alto player that hit such high notes that weren’t even on the charts. And all this from a player whose first instrument was piano, who switched to sax because a piano teacher had his saxophone near his piano. And as if that isn’t amazing enough Gerald actually has doubled on Bass for many recording sessions with Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, etc. etc.etc.

    Gerald is simply one gifted musician.

    I've been listening to a Frank Lowe album called Lowe Down & Blue with Bern Nix on guitar.
    Steve Lacy is someone I keep returning to. His recorded output is absolutely vast.

    Man, we seem to be on the same page! I love Frank Lowe and Bern is one of my favorite guitar improvisers.
    As for Steve Lacy, I have looked to his work and writings for my entire life it seems. To me he is the ultimate artist-musician-composer- improviser.

    As for sax players I don't like, I saw Archie Shepp live in Rome in 1976. That's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.

    A lot of what John Klemmer has recorded falls into the smooth jazz bucket but I like this duo album ...

    I don’t suppose there were many flocking to that gig. Ewe could have tried to get your money back?

    Mines in storage somewhere with all my other CD’s. Cliffy was pretty young at this point I think? Peter Ind on bass (when it’s not NHOP) was his teacher at Leeds iirc

    Found this photo online of them all doing a gig in Whitley Bay (!). Dave Cliff is in the bottom right pic.

    So many but man, Art Pepper was just such a great improvisor it's almost scary, didn't have a cliche in his whole body.
    He just kept evolving to the end, a favorite is his reading of When The Sun Comes Out from his "Wintermoon" lp

    Spike Robinson with Martin Taylor on guitar. Released 1984.

    I heard Spike play a few times in the past. I liked his breathy sax tone.

    I saw Archie Shepp live in Paris sometime in the 1990's, a great night, smoking was banned in the venue that night too and the Parisians obeyed.

    Thanks for reminding me of the sax player I wanted to post but couldn't remember.
