Dolo Coker - Dolo

Has really been a couple of months since I posted? Damn technology holding me back. Well, I am trying something new so let's see how this works. An obscure little jazz record that I love.
More info if it works....
Dolo Coker was famous for his record California Hard which featured saxophonist Art Pepper.
This one from '77 features the cream of the west coast studio guys at the time.

You'll find this gem here. Xanadu 139

Leroy Vinnegar - bass
