Fascinating interview with Schlinger. I was tickled to see that he singled out that Bill Potts "Porgy and Bess" album. Bought it when it came out and felt right off just as he did. BTW, I recall reading somewhere that Charlie Persip sight-read the charts on that date!

Sol might not consider himself a jazz player but his solo work was always swinging, interesting, and personal.

James Cimarusti

Those are two of my favorite albums and Sol has great solo spots on them both! Then again, Sol does a fantastic job on any recording he participates in.

Bruce Armstrong

Thanks for the interview with a real unsung hero of the baritone saxophone. That East Coast sax section was pure "gold" and Sol was a big part of it. Years ago I remember reading an interview with Zoot Sims where he talked about using musicians' names in song titles. He used his own name in "Zoot Sims I've Heard That Song Before." My favorite was based on Sol's name: "Schlinger Awhile."

Great article and very informative. I'm a Sol fan so enjoyed reading this a lot. Thanks!
