Tenor saxophone is front and center on this show. We'll hear some jazz artists from today's generation of tenor players along with some grand masters of the past. Representing players on the scene today are Marcus Strickland, Jimmy Greene and Abraham Burton. Of course there are so many great players out there, that it would be impossible to hear them all on one broadcast. From the past, two of the greatest are represented here with Ben Webster and Lester Young.

    Enjoyed the Ben Webster selections, especially the track from Ronnie Scott’s, which quotes Charlie Parker’s ‘Ornithology’ towards the end. Ronnie Scott’s was of course the premier jazz club in London, and Jackie Dougan, Rick Laird and Stan Tracey would have been the house rhythm section provided for visiting soloists at the time. Unfortunately recording technology over here was a long way behind the US at the the time so I can well believe it was a 1964 recording!
