Dude, sweet song. Hey, if you're into sweet sax soli's, check out: Ricks Licks, Sonny's Place, and, huge sweet sax soli here: Cruisin for a Bluesin.
Yeah, I like all Gordon Goodwin's stuff. He's a great guy. It's really cool that he lives in my town and his son will go to my school (after I graduate though :cry: )
