Tom Baker and Martin Litton

Here is a video of American/Australian multi-instrumentalist Tom Baker on tenor sax with UK pianist Martin Litton, playing Stardust. A winning combination!

Tom Baker didn't inspire me to play jazz, but soon after I discovered jazz, he became my hero. He still is. Countless musicians, young and old, felt/feel the same. He was a truly special human being who left us too young and too early.

Martin Litton is another exceptional musician, commanding a whole range of styles and moods at the piano. I've never met a more gentlemanly fellow.

This is only one of a bunch of great videos from a performance by the Swedish Jazz Kings with guests at Askersund Jazz Festival in Sweden.
