More Info:

Sam 'the Man' Taylor - Sax Supreme: The Singles & Albums Collection 1949-58 \This album marks him out as a master of one of the most notable saxophonists of his era. Sam 'The Man' Taylor was a renowned tenor saxophonist whose work spanned the R&B, jazz, blues and pop arenas, and was famed both for his work as a ubiquitous session man on hit recordings by major artists, but also for his own work leading his own bands. He was best-known for his sax solo on Big Joe Turner's classic "Shake Rattle And Roll", as well as on records like The Drifters "Money Honey" and "Sh-Boom" by The Chords. As a recording artist in his own right, his work comprised singles and albums that featured both original material and interpretations of standards designed to showcase his distinctive style as a saxophonist. This 53-track 2-CD collection comprises early releases on the Abbey label plus most of his A & B sides with his Cat Men and orchestra from these years on MGM, along with selected titles from his MGM albums "Blue Mist", "Out Of This World", "Music With The Big Beat", "Music For Melancholy Babies", "Rockin' Sax and Rollin' Organ" (With Dick Hyman), and "Jazz For Commuters And Salute To The Saxes". It's a varied and entertaining cross-section of his recorded output during this era, which marks him out as a master of one of the most notable saxophonists of his era.
