Remembering Hal McKusick

 

Noted alt-sax, flautist and clarinetist passed away on April 11th at the age of 81.   As well as leading his own band, Hal played and recorded with people like Woody Herman, John Coltrane and George Russell.  Tremendously talented, his style was definitively 50’s jazz.  I have included several tracks for us to enjoy, perfect Sunday morning music.
