Sal Nistico

A sketchy portrait of Sal Nistico. This one´s for Johnny Brewton.
I'd heard Sal Nistico's name but I didn´t know much about this guy when Johnny mentioned him. He played mostly tenor sax and was with Woody Herman in the sixties. But he was more of a bebop man on his own albums later. He also played together with Nick Brignola, the bariton saxophone guy.

A good friend said this is my best poem.
I hope not. But maybe, if you are old enough, this will make you smile...
