I was reliving the late 50/60's and back into my favourite R & R songs and tunes, and this tune was probably one of the best Guitar/Saxaphone tunes of it's time.

Wondered if anybody else has memories like this?

Duane Eddy didnt do a lot for me , but even though it was NOT my kind of Jazz , I DID enjoy The Late Humph's Bad Penny Blues , which has neither Sax NOR Guitar - For Sax it has to be Paul Desmond and The Brubeck Quartet . Take Five !

If you are asking about recordings of sax and guitar players working together, check out "Let's Cook" by barney Kessel.

He has Beb Webster guesting on several cut.

Both are unusually gutsy players with plenty of Blues feeing.

I like Paul Desmond, Art Pepper and Lee Konitz, by they are more ethrial.

"Let's Cook!" is on eBay from several dealers right now (CD, 1999 issue) for about $7.00.

Sax in the 60's: Gerry Mulligan. Stan Getz and Paul Desmond will do. R&B sax has to include Earl Bostick and King Curtis. For Jazz guitar, Tal Farlow stands alone. He won the Downbeat poll for jazz guitarists for so many years I wonder why they even bothered taking a vote. On the gentler side you have to include Charlie Byrd and Jim Hall as guitarists.

They are 2 of my favourites as well.

Raphael Ravenscroft is one hell of a sax player. I suppose most people would know who he is when I mention that he played the sax solo in Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty.

Another sax player was Rudy Pompilli who was in the Comets of Bill Haley and The Comets.

I have to admit that I am not a fan of the sax jazz players. I love the raunchy sax players.

Lee Allen - one of the greatest tenor sax players to participate in the New Orleans rock'n roll scene. Played with numerous guitarists.

Jimmy Giuffre & Jim Hall: "The Train And The River".

Raf Ravenscroft lived in my village in Sussex some years ago - joined in the local jams. Nice bloke.

hi jerry

I agree with gerry Mulligan....fantastic.

I am also a Lionel Hampton afficionado - surely the best ever exponent of the vibraphone. I have some of his stuff where he features Earl Bostic - what a sound !!

I also have some of Earl's old 78's like Flamingo, Harlem Nocturn etc etc.

This is music to listen to, not background slush. I lock myself in my music room when I play this kind of music - no kids, no wife no nothing...lol

As for guitar well Barnel Kessel and Wes Montgomery do it for me.

Cheers

I had no idea at the time, but now know, that Danny Cedrone played the guitar solo on 'Rock Around The Clock'. I thought then and think now that it is a great piece of work. Mr. Cedrone died shortly after the recording as the result of a fall.
I too loved the work of King Curtis and Lee Allen without being aware of who they were until much later. The same goes for Chet Atkins and James Burton with The Everlys , Rick Nelson et al.

Just been reminding myself of the often unrecognised talent of Billy Haley's Comets who, without Haley and under the name of the "Kingsmen", made that wonderful rock'n roll instrumental "Week End". Just listen to the saxophones rock out towards the end - stunning!

It was indeed, Arthur! The temptation, in the rock'n roll era of the late 1950s and early 1960s, was to assume that, because the music was perhaps harmonically and melodically simple when compared to - say - big band music - that the musicians/singers themselves weren't very good. But the oddest records can produce magnificent playing. For example, just take a listen to Shirley Ellis's (1964) take on a children's street game - "The Name Game". Sounds rather silly at first - perhaps even banal - just childish wordplay on people's names. Then listen to the backing music - really tight, funky playing - and then discover that Shirley Ellis was a seriously good R&B singer with seriously good musicians playing for her.

A lesser known jazz guitarist who folkies should enjoy is George Van Epps. Geoorge's father Fred was one of the two finest early plecrturm banjo players, along with Vess Ossman. George's signature sound come from fingerpicking a 7 string guitar, the lowest string adding additional bass notes. George's musical career stretches back to the '30's and he was still recording in the '90;s. He's well worth tracking down.

George Van Epps was a great guitarist - as were the late 1930s duo of Carl Kress & Dick McDonough. Their recording of "Heatwave" is magical.

And I can't bring words to sufficiently describe the magic of Eddie Lang - who tragically died at an early age.

Another example of how I like to hear the sax played - I think it was king Curtis. Right up your street Jerry They have a connection to Doo Wop in the 60's :-) Bet you could say a bit about them.

Good thread, eh?
Previous mention of King Curtis and Barney Kessel reminds me that whereas KC was more or less resident on Coasters' sessions Mr. Kessel wasn't above making a few dollars drumming for Lieber and Stoller

You are right Spaw. They also worked with someone who was one of my favourite piano players - Floyd Cramer.

One of the best studio Tenor players ever......You heard him on records from Ella Fitzgerald to BB King to Sinatra to Ricky Nelson as well as on many movie soundtracks.......and it is one of those for which he best known, "The Pink Panther." Plas Johnson is for my money one of the most underrated sax players of all time.

That's great, Arthur! I was born in 1935 and I love the music of the '20's. I grew up in a family where we sang alot of the popular music from the turn of the century, and I cut my teeth on the music of the '40's and the Big Band era. Right now I am reading a fascinating biography of Bix Beiderbecke, one of the two greatest trumpet players of the '20's, along with Louis Armstrong. I love Bix's music, and he died before I was born. I've enjoyed pop music through doo wop from it's earliest beginnings through rockabilly and rock and rooll and rock all the way up until rap and hip hop. I never could get into rap, but some of the hip hop like the Blackeyed Peas I can enjoy. I'm all over the map on folk, jazz, a fair amount of country until it became hat music, gospel, blues, soul.... you get the idea. For most people, their era is from about 15 to 25 years of age, and then it's all nostalgia after that. I expect that as long as I am kicking around this world, I'll hear new music that excites me. Oh yeah, there's also reggae, African music....
