Inaugural episode of the GFM series that hopes to bring you the best in sax in its role in popular music over the last few decades. I must admit the saxophone has been missing somewhat on the contemporary landscape as far as memorable solos or lines go but quite frankly a lot of instruments have been M.I.A. in that regard. I hope you enjoy this classic that features Pete Christlieb on Tenor and to coin a phrase “They don’t write ’em like that anymore.” Enjoy!
