Saxophone Solos with Organ Accompaniment
Decca Records DL 8891

From the back cover: Philadelphia-born Carl Weston began his professional career as a jazz musician with the Joe Venuti group in Atlantic City. After several years in burlesque, he worked with the then-famous Jan Savitt orchestra in radio. A veteran of several years of "society music" in the famous Lester Latin tradition, Mr. Weston has also been associated with great orchestras such as Jimmy Dorsey's. A saxophonist soloist with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra for over ten years, he has been acclaimed for outstanding solos in the orchestra's performances of several important works – among them Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition."

From Billboard - June 22, 1959: Sax star Weston wraps up a group of dream standards in wistful, leisurely paced solo sets, with organ backing. Nice sentimental jockey package. Selections include "I Wonder What's Become Of Sally?" "Wonderful One" and "A Perfect Day."
