Great Music!!
Great sax playing!!

I will definitely,
I wish I knew who the tenor sax player is in the band
the HONDELLS?
Some times it sounds like Boots Randolph....

After some research I found out the sax player I was refering to was indeed Johnny Paris. Here are some CD recommendations : Those who want everything by Johnny and the Hurricanes are advised to look out for the three Repertoire CD's : Red River Rock (REP 4739), Stormsville (REP 4740) and The Big Sound of Johnny and the Hurricanes (REP 4741), though these are now out of print and hard to find. He was the heart and soul of the early rock and surf sax sound ! His playing still has a big influence on guys like me who love the honkin' wailing sound of the 50's and
early 60's!
Long Live Johnny Paris!
