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!
David Page t / Al King tb / Arnett Cobb ts / George Rhodes p / Walter Buchanan sb / George Jones d.
Recorded in New York in August 1947.
