King Curtis certainly had a lot of respect in the music industry. His collaborations were legendary. Everyone from The Coasters to Bobby Darin, Buddy Holly, Aretha Franklin and John Lennon, just to name a few. Great sax!
Gut-bustin' big tenor man... King Curtis. Taken from this world much too soon. All you gotta do is settle into "Tanya" ah... that's it. More people should listen to King Curtis that like the saxophone, I think sometimes people hear certain "names" and don't look or listen any further. Missing the immense expressiveness of the horn, not watered down or background, but in your face, power!
