Love your blog…
Got it from Kenny Harris* here in Bermuda. I am a tenor and soprano sax player living in Bermuda as Kenny is. Trying to keep flame alive. Damn, there are so many steel pan players here, but I guess that’s what the tourists want.
The real reason I emailed you is response to the baritone sax players. ~~~ great. Just a plug for my old friend, Nick Brignola. Never seemed to get his due, but could also play great tenor and soprano. May he RIP.
Keep up the good work.
*The British drummer Kenny Harris played in New York in the 1950s with Sonny Stitt, Paul Bley and others and appeared at clubs including the Hickory House, Basin Street East and The Embers. He had a memorable encounter in Bermuda with Paul Desmond, recalled in Take Five: The Public and Private Lives of Paul Desmond, pages 248-9. Harris wrote a biography of his teacher and hero Don Lamond, First Call Drummer, out of print but worth seeking. —DR
