Sonny Criss - The Isle of Celia

Some how I followed a YouTube link to Kenny G. and got to thinking about my favorite sax player none other than the incomparable Sonny Criss. Yes, a quick search located several videos. This was the lead tune from his last studio LP Crisscraft. Such a gifted player, with lovely phrasing, and fast but clean. You won't hear a slurred note ever from Sonny unless he wants it that way. Enough play the video and go search out some more of this under-appreciated West Coast Cool alto player. - Khun Rut
