Cool! Wouldn't it be great to have someone do a history of the saxophone documentary in the same style of the Tim Burns' "Jazz" series. Your articles would certainly help to glue together the pieces of how things develop. Thanks.

Stubblefield was an unsung Master for sure with a long history ie: AACM,R&b,Jazz in any mode he was an on player RIP Stubblefield..
I especially liked the gigs and recordings with Kenny Barron's quintet w/ Eddie Henderson on trumpet. Stubbs was blowin' white hot like Pharoah!

Stubbs was smart....he stayed within the side rank..in Kennys nands and Mingus BB as a key member. At a point, in 70's he played oboe, bass clarinet and alto in various MINGUS bands with Mingus. Not run from the desk of da' wife. LOL.....

John also wrote quite a hit for Hank Crawford called " Midnight In Memphis".
