The Tonight Show Band: Sax Alley
"Sax Alley", the Tonight Show Band tune-- a wild amazing track. When they were getting ready to go on tour with it, the band graced viewers of The Tonight Show with a beautiful, swinging run-through that's since been posted to YouTube.
Complete with glitches. A citizens-band radio interrupts it at one point, TV interference and generally lower grade mono sound, circa 1983. Being, of course, a lover of the Audio, I put Audacity on it: replacing what I had to, compressing, EQing, tweaking, pinching, burping...
If you dig jazz, give it a listen. Featuring Pete Christlieb and Ernie Watts. The mid-range is still a little ringy, but what the heck.
Here's the link to the video on YouTube.
