Re: Sax Bands or Tenor Sax Bands
Little Richard used a drummer and three awesome tenors.
Many of the black players that people stole fron (Pat Boone) used the same setup. Ray Charles used a number of tenors in early days also. Jimmi Hendrix came from such an enviroment, but many people just don't know the true musical history behind where we are today. Tenor saxes were very dominant in the early crossover days.
It took European white guys to make the black music make stream.
