RE: Chicagoans Unite

That first part is the first time I had heard Kidd play alto in maybe 25 years. When I first saw Kidd in the mid 80's in New Orleans he always played a straight alto (before that he was known for playing the C melody!) but by the nineties he always played tenor. Of course all this time (and going back to the late 50's) he played baritone for commercial work: touring Broadway pit bands; touring r' and b' stars like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder; and recording sessions for local artists like Earl King and Professor Longhair and even The Supremes and R.E.M.
