    I'm not that much into tenor sax, but this man was a master of it, and I'd like to hear more of his stuff.

    Does anyone know what album GENE AMMONS played "PLAY ME" on ? The Neil Diamond song GENE made his own. When you hear it get ready to weep, in a good way. It's been over 35 yrs for me since I heard it and I'm 58. It's special to me for personal reasons, but I know you'll like it. thanks
