Who was the sax player on the last track tonight - just before 7pm on 24th June?

A compelling inclusion indeed.
Recommend listening furthermore to:
Joe Harriott Double Quintet "Indo-Jazz Suite", released 1966.
Extraordinary sounds both part of and ahead of their time. Enthralling.
Enjoy another fine Jazztrack presentation!
