Title: Goin' Uptown: The R&B Years

A colossus in every way possible, Big Al Sears was a giant of the tenor saxophone who played with the most popular bands of the swing era before meeting the rhythm & blues onslaught head-on and assisting Alan Freed to give birth to rock 'n' roll. Here are thirty examples of the best of his unique style from his heyday in the 1950s, including the smash hit "Castle Rock". 30 great cuts of prime sax honking and rockin'. This is a must have for fans of cool sax playing, r&b and rock 'n' roll alike. Fully detailed liner notes covering his early life and career.
