The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 6


The Rhythm 'n Blues era yielded a vast amount of great instrumentals. Quite a few of them already featured previous episodes of the Legends of the Rocking Dutchman, but this one is dedicated to some of the best instrumentals. It starts off with the fourteen-minute frantic mover that I promised you on the previous show. And in this episode I will also explain why I do the talking and the saxophonists do the playing - and not the other way around.
