198: “Dr. Follow’s Dance” by Gary Bartz

Full circle style would be cool again today.Gary Bartz doesn’t have a kick-ass name. But his alto sax is smooth as Bartz.

I found Gary Bartz on YouTube during my intensive and sweaty research for Uncle Funk Finds Songs For You.  I’ve bought a couple of his discs now, and this is one of my favorite tracks, from Juju Street Songs (1972).  He played with Miles Davis on his Live-Evil album, but I had never heard of him until he popped up on YouTube.

There’s a lot of hot Bartz out there, and I’m always excited to find someone I’ve never listened to before.

I hope you enjoy the Bartz out of this tune.
