Monster Saxes

This podcast features some monster players, particularly on alto sax. We start with Greg Abate as we did last week, and expand to some other great alto players in Jackie McLean, Cannonball Adderley and Art Pepper. We move to the tenor next with a couple of tracks from John Coltrane. Trane teams up with Monk and Ellington on these two tracks. We keep to the masters with pianist Bud Powell. It doesn't end there as we continue with a duo from Frank Morgan and John Hicks. We end the podcast with a more modern sound from tenor sax player Donnie McCaslin from his latest CD.

    Good lord, Art Pepper’s “How High the Moon” swings so hard. Thanks for reminding what an amazing artist he is.
