US saxophone player Paul Gonsalves, recording on a UK label – as he lived in the UK for a while. Great friend and colleague of Duke Ellington.

Apparently according to some sources, the title track was named after his heroin dealer!
(EDIT: Although, the sleeve notes actually say:
"The Jackie in part of the title track alludes to Paul Gonsalves friend, club-owner, musician, and fight-fan Jackie Sharp.")
