5.0 out of 5 stars the greatest soul sax player 16 Mar 2013
By Corbin Gérard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nowadays I can't see any other talented sax player like King Curtis ; he was the best in any genre but mostly through rythm and blues and as Aretha Franklin's musical director.
What a shame he died in such a cruel way ?
We miss him so much but he is still alive through his music.
