Latin Jazz Sax needed

Hey horn players,

I need some sax (head and solo) for a few Latin Jazz pieces due next week. Here is a rough mix of the Mambo number (I'm still working on the Samba and a bossa). ... zz/s-Pet6Y Taxi wants something similar to Charlie Parker's "My Little suede shoes". Sonny Rollins "St Thomas" is pretty close too. So it requires some bop-style soloing. Doesn't have to be perfect- just wail on a few takes and I'll "comp" them into a coherent solo if needed. Lot's of fun!

In return, I can play some piano or organ on your tunes as needed. I play a real Hammond M3, so I can supply some authenticity.

Reply if interested.

I forgot to mention: obviously I would provide a version with the piano stripped out, or with light comping. That's the whole problem: too much piano and I'm no Oscar Peterson. The horn should be front and center.
