  • "easy"
  • swing ike
  • this is delightful.
  • Yup........
  • still can't get enough of it!
  • I feel silly, as a sax player, to admit that I just discovered Mr. Quebec's "Bossa Nova Soul Samba" a few days ago, bought it used so I could give his recordings a try...OH MY. I am so enamored with his honey-dripping tone! If you could give silk a "sound" I think you could say it is Ike Quebec's tenor.... Now, I feel the urge to make a mix with Ike, Ben Webster, Prez and Getz what a smoothie that will be! Bottoms up :-)
  • blues and sentimental
  • cards4life KNOWS.
  • "It Might As Well Be Spring" is my favorite jazz album of all time!
  • "Bossa Nova Soul Samba is so damn smooth. Love it" Definitely agree with this.
