Arnett Cobb & His Orchestra - Apollo 778 (1947)

Just came across a batch of wax that had been boxed up for quite a while. While not being too keen into post-war / bop jazz, I still collect it for when my taste might come around.

Here we have a 1947 Apollo release by Arnett Cobb, one of a handful of Texas Tenors.

Searching the net for other tenor saxophonists from the Lone Star State, I also found Herschel 'Tex' Evans, Illinois Jacquet (from Louisiana but raised in Texas), Buddy Tate, David 'Fathead' Newman AND last but NOT least, Gordon 'Tex' Beneke!
