Recently I was listening to the Franco Micalizzi station at Pandora when something incredibly funky came out of the stereo. It was the amazing Preston Love getting down with Chili Mac from his Omaha Bar-B-Q album. Preston Love was an old school sax player who came up in the big band era, playing with Count Basie and many others. In the late 60’s a lot of these cats cut some remarkably funky soul instrumentals and Omaha Bar-B-Q is one of the best. This was recorded with Johnny Otis and his band, with 14 year old Shuggie Otis tearing it up on guitar.
I’m pretty sure Preston Love was the funkiest thing to ever come out of Omaha, NE.
