The First Call: Tenor Sax Larry McKenna http://wrti.org/post/first-call-tenor-sax-larry-mckenna <p>Here in Philly, whenever someone needs a tenor sax player, the first call is to jazz great Larry McKenna. It's been that way for so long that most know his number by heart. And it's not just jazz bands that make that call.</p><p>It was that way when he backed Sinatra at the Latin Casino; when he was part of the "MFSB Orchestra" for Gamble and Huff backing Patti LaBelle, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes and other Philly greats; when director Alan Parker needed music and a player for the Nicholas Cage film, <em>Birdy</em>, and many other instances.</p> Fri, 16 Aug 2013 20:29:56 +0000 Joe Patti & Jill Pasternak 6336 at http://wrti.org The First Call: Tenor Sax Larry McKenna Where Music Lives: On, And At, WRTI http://wrti.org/post/where-music-lives-and-wrti <p></p><p>Music lives on - and at - WRTI, where throughout 2013 we're celebrating our 60th anniversary.
