I just put that song in also!  I hadn't seen other posts yet - totally agree!  The sax display is awesome, and when I hear that song, the volume goes up - way up 👌!

2) Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard  (Gerry Niewood on sax).

 

On the album you can hear S&G acknowledge each player after their respective performances.
