Long live the dean of Chicago tenor saxophonists!

Was just playing George with Jimmy McGriff on the radio from "Friday
the 13th at the Cook County Jail." Stank!

Anyone check out his "out take" of "Billie's Bounce" on the
Premonition box of "left overs"? Burnin'.

Von once told me he'd never heard an outstanding instrumental version
of "What's New," that the song didn't lend itself to a high level of
instrumental interpretation. Have kept an ear out for one ever since
and, so far, he's right.
