Doug Cannon – Go With The Flow
Swing was an integral part of Doug Cannon's hard-driving tenor saxophone attack long before the term assumed such vast retro appeal with a new generation of nimble jitterbuggers. As the resident horn specialist for the Vanessa Davis Band - one of Chicago's top-drawing attractions throughout the 1980's and well into the next decade- Cannon's blazing breaks and crisp fills were integral to the combo's dynamic R&B rooted appeal. While Vanessa tore up the audience with her raucous antics, Doug readied himself for another rafter-rattling sax solo, often hiking the excitement level even a trifle higher in the process.
