Hi, Marc:

Beautiful post on the great Cecil Payne. But what about his recordings with Randy Weston? Aren't they an important part of his recorded legacy?

All the best,

Sergio

P.S.: Hey, I didn't forget about sending you my CD; it must be on its way soon.

Cecil Payne was a great musician and neighbor growing up. In that clip that is not Cecil playing baritone but rather Leo Parker another fine but underated baritonist.
