This show is all about Selmers and Yamahas, Bueschers and Kings, and the guys & gals who make 'em sound great! There's also a pianist or two, a singer here or there, even some brass. Not all saxy, just very. Lots of new albums got added to my library, many thanks to former Jazz Greats host and show originator Mariann! At the end of the show we'll hear another lengthy odyssey, this time from Wynton Kelly and Hank Mobley you won't want to miss. Tune in for another swingin' show, broadcast live on Tuesday March 11th from 3-7pm eastern. Stop by the show's Facebook page & say howdy and to see my ridiculous poster for this episode.
