My old pal JF turned me on to this ridiculously swingin’ tenor sax man Harry Allen. I’m ashamed to say I wasn’t aware of the individual but he has a big new fan. Here’s him and his quartet, co-led by great guitarist Joe Cohn (son of Al, who could swing a tenor in his own right), rockin’ an up-tempo take on an old standard. And what’s up with all those key changes at the end?!
Definitely old school, but I’ll be awful surprised if this doesn’t have you poppin’ your fingers on beats two and four.
