Members Only - Members Only 1987
A 1987 concept work, with a variety of name jazz musicians getting together for a good-natured blowing session. Mike Brecker, Lew Soloff, and Nelson Rangell were featured stars. The release did well enough to merit a follow-up in 1989, Members Only.... Too. Rangell was on board again, but there were new participants this time, among them Bob Merrill, Jimi Tunnell, and Jerry Bennett.
