*** on this CD he says something like "yea Gary" at the end of the sax solo. Do you have an idea what/whom he could have meant? ***
Steffen, read my post prior to yours, I had already mentioned the fact that it is Gary Scott on tenor saxophone he is referring to.
The fact that the liner notes make no mention of either soloist (not Pearson, nor Scott or Harkins' wonderful piano solo) is one of the weak aspects of this album.
