Description by OLDIES.com:

Saxophone player Willis "Gator" Jackson got his nickname from his 1948 hit, "Gator Tail." His unique tenor sax sound -- considered passionate, rollicking, sensual and earthy -- is captured on these original Atlantic recordings from the mid-1970's. Popular songs of the day "Lady Marmalade," "The Way We Were," and "Feelings" are among the highlights.
