Boots Randolph's Rock and Roll Saxophone Paperback – March 1, 1998
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Randolph Boots (Homer Louis Randolph III) had a multi-million selling hit single with "Yakety Sax", penned by Boots and his friend James Q. "Spider" Rich. It's that song that many among us remember from the very popular British "Benny Hill" show. Boots was the first musician to play sax with Elvis including "Return To Sender" and "Reconsider Baby". He played on 8 of Elvis' Movie Soundtracks.
He was a major player in creating the "Nashville Sound". He played on recordings such as Roy Orbison's "Oh, Pretty Woman", "Blue Bayou", and "In Dreams", Al Hirt's "Java", REO Speedwagon's "Little Queenie", and Brenda Lee's "Rockin' 'Round The Christmas Tree", "I Want To Be Wanted" and "I'm Sorry".
I don't play sax, but I do buy the books for my son who plays tenor sax. I love boogie-woogie, jump blues, electric blues and old time rock 'n' roll. This book is right in that alley. My son has played yakety sax more than any other song in his library of 10 plus sax books. ;-)
The included CD gives you techniques, performances and play-alongs for the transcriptions.
Funny How Things Slips Away
St. Louis Blues
Ballin' The Jack
Bill Bailey, Won't You Please Come Home
It also has a list of must recommended Rock 'n' Roll sax players to listen to.
Yeah baby! Boots, you rock! ;-)
The seller did have a note this had No CD however I missed that info.
What would be handy is a better way of letting the buyer know the product is incomplete. Play-along without a CD is nothing. sorry I am so stupid
