(W. Robison / O.L. Hill)
The first significant instrumental recording of Old Folks by a jazz artist is attributed to former Basie tenor saxophonist Don Byas in 1946. Del Gatto tips his ever present hat in appreciation to an admitted personal musical hero, saxophone colossus Theodore Walter “Sonny” Rollins (utilizing the Rollins classic piano-less trio) while still retaining his own stylistic voice. Tony Marino’s warm bass accompanies Lew adding a solo of note while Whaley’s sensitive brush work lightly swings to good effect. The arrangement is Lew’s. Mike Simonetti
