Whether your ear is caught by the saxophone of Earl Bostic or Eddie Harris, the flute of Herbie Mann, Ray Charles effervescent keyboards (he played sax too) or the music of Cuban-born King of theMambo Perez Prado,whose 1958 US chart-topper Patricia is familiar from countless movies and television ads,one thing is certain the jazz instrumental still reigns supreme. 2.
