By chance I found a video of Gil Bernal performing on the Spike Jones TV show (circa 1957). Pretty exciting because I've never actually seen him playing the sax before. He played and sang on lots of records.

This is a great clip and it's totally live. Gil sings "Send For Me" and then plays a rockin' solo, even playing with just one hand for a few seconds.
Check it out at 1:40

That's OUTSTANDING! I love watching those old tv show clips. Even better when they're not chopped up into 2-3 minute videos!
Gil sounded amazing, but I was equally happy to see/hear Goodman with Ella, Peggy Lee, Shelley Manne, etc....

Thanks for posting!
