I had to throw this one in the midst of all of this sax appeal. It does belong as you'll see by the musicians playings while the Lady, Billie Holiday sings Fine and Mellow. Included among the musicians are Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster and Gerry Mulligan to name a few. For the list of musicians in this clip check out the original over on YouTube.

ALL ABOUT JAZZ
Hank Mobley played tenor sax. It is said that jazz connoisseurs didnt' really appreciate Hank Mobley until after he died. His style was easy going and mellow. One of the more interesting things I read about Hank Mobley was that he produced an album in 1961, Another Workout, and that though it was considered an instant classic wasn't released until 1985.
I love the music in these two videos. Sorry that it's not a live performance or anything you can really watch but its definitely a wonderful thing for your ears. Happy listening.
Have you missed me? (smile) Sorry for the delay. I've gotten back into my glass painting and crafts and this blog was a little more time consuming than I had time for but I've having sax withdrawals and had to come give myself a little boost.
If you want to see my glasses click here and here. Now back to a little of that sax appeal.

I mentioned saxophonist Donn Bynum in a previous blog. Well, his new CD "Do You Feel Me" is out and you can take a listen to it at CDbaby.com. If you like smooth and saxy I'm pretty sure you're going to like this one.
