A couple more here from Big Jay McNeely, one of the finest honkers to ever pick up a saxophone. There are more technically proficient sax players, more innovative and so forth, but McNeely just flat out wailed. Check out the songs on this post for some examples of that. He also excelled at strip tease type instrumentals. Here's a couple of them and surprisingly "Strip Tease Swing" isn't even the best of the two. Though I've only heard a fraction of McNeely's output, I can't imagine anything surpassing his cover of "Night Train" for backing the bump and grind. Amazing that it was recorded in 1984, right about when metal invaded the strip clubs (as I've been told...). What a damn trouper, keeping that tassle twirlin' torch lit. Fuck that "Cherry Pie" shit.
