Woody Herman with Sal Nistico - “Sister Sadie”


About The Video

The exciting tenor saxophonist Sal Nistico is shown here in performance with the 1964 Thundering Herd on BBC Television. Few clips survive of the great Nistico, one of the unsung giants of the tenor.

The "64 65 " band was one of Woody's best, but i first heard him on m.g.m records at "carniegie hall concert recorded in 1945 that was something of a rave considering how big bands of the time From that day on i was sold.

Great in every aspect. Jake Hannah, Chuck, and Nat Pierce really lock in the pocket! I had a great time being on this band just shortly after this was made in 1964.

Unreal burner of a player! A lot of younger generation sax players don't know about Sal. When he moved to Italy he was soon forgotten by most. May he R.I.P. Also the band nick-named Chuck Andrus, the bass player, to call him 'Charley the Arm'.
