Dub Collision Mix – Sax Gladness

Years ago a fellow jazz fanatic asked me what my favorite instrument was ‘in jazz.’ I blurted out “saxophone.” He told me I had to narrow it down. I thought for a minute, and gave him the correct answer, “Piano!” What had I been thinking initially?

Still, I can’t narrow it, the saxophone, down. You wish for me to weigh preferences between Coltrane and Parker and Lacy? Nocando. . . .between David Murray, Jackie McLean, and Hamiett Bluiett? Idontthinkso.
