Notes

"The mists of Jamaican oral folk history reveal that Barber Mack, to whom this CD is dedicated, was a tonsorial artist by day and a mento sax player by night . . . By all accounts, mostly from senior Jamaicans, he was a legendary player whose alto was the main attraction . . . Ernest Ranglin saw him as a boy at Coney Island and remembers that Barber Mack could make his alto 'smoke' at midnight: a trick which added to Mack's legend where he would duck backstage, close the keys of the saxophone and blow cigarette smoke into the instrument before returning to the front of the stage to solo with the 'smoke' emitting from every orifice, a feat the young Ernie never forgot."
