Jason Crane | The Jazz Session

One of my favorite of Harry's solo appearances on a "pop" recording is his solo on Nat Cole's version of "Rote 66." It's a study in economy, beauty and the blues.

Marc,

Thank you - I know the late Gerry Wiggins loved performing at Bob and B.J.'s space. Wig and his wife Lynn are friends/extended family. In fact, I'm going to print out the best copy possible and mail this to Lynn Wiggins as she has not yet embraced PC technology. She will be especially delighted to have the photograph of Wig, Andy and Sweets, may they all rest in peace.

A somewhat related and cute story: I first met Andy Simpkins when he was on the road with Sarah Vaughan. He used to always talk about getting home (to L.A.) to get his "Wig fix." Anyone having the extraordinary pleasure of hearing Wig and Andy perform together would surely understand Andy's phrase!

A huge thanks to you, Marc, and to Paul for his beautiful photography.

I second Jason's comment on Sweets' "Route 66" solo. AFTER MIDNIGHT, the Nat Cole album it was on, is one of my "desert island discs".
