Rhapsody in blue

Clarke/Boland Big Band


Based on the changes for 'Chinatown', here's a 1968 recording (slightly abbreviated - live, it could go on for 20 minutes) of Francy Boland's 'Sax No End', featuring one of the best saxophone sections of any jazz orchestra ever.
 Soloists in order are:
Johnny Griffin
Tony Coe
Ronnie Scott
Sahib Shihab
Derek Humble
 The solos are great, but just wait for the soli section where all five play as one.
Having Kenny Clarke and Kenny Clare behind you helps a bit too...
