This music helped define one era and augur in the next. Buddy Tate was one of the “Texas Tenors”, players from the Lone Star State who share the trademark big, warm tenor sax sound drenched in the blues. From 1939-48 he was a featured soloist in the iconic Count Basie Orchestra, playing the riff-laden Kansas City swing style that presaged R&B, rock & roll, and bop. At the time of this 1970 recording, Tate’s band presided at NYC’s Celebrity Club, extending that KC tradition.
