Adrian Tapia aka "Sax"
Sax Soloist/Arranger on JoJo
Horn credits on "JOJO" - "I wrote the first arrangement for JOJO for Boz during rehearsals at SIR when he first played the tracks to us ....and Johnny Madrid and I got a "feel" for the tune. I have those rehearsal recordings on cassette....took the tape home and came up with the arrangement .....used my arrangement when the band was on a LA TV ABC show called "Fridays". I knew Jerry and "Seawind" back then..Seawind was our "warm-up act at Universal that summer..and Jerry was the MAN...even back then from all the recording with Michael Jackson for Quincy Jones. Kim and I are good friends and have recorded many times together. Jerry Hey and Kim Hutchcroft and Bill Richenbach played my arrangement on that show...I was in London with Helen Reddy at the time of the TV taping 1981. It's my arrangement on the recording. I'm playing flute overdubs and the sax solo.
We did that one night at Bill Schnee's. I had
been skiing all week.....got a phone call from Boz ...and just drove
back from Mammoth to play the session......it was just Bill, Boz and me
in the studio the night I recorded my solo on JOJO....and Boz played
the track and noted the spots he wanted me to blow... I chose Alto
sax..............and I did my thing!!"
Official Site for Boz Scaggs & Steely Dan Guitarist
1980's & 90's Guitarist For Boz Scaggs
"My time with Boz: The first couple of years were a serious crash course in show biz. I had been out of music school less than a year when Jeff Porcaro and Steve Lukather found me via some high school friends of theirs when Boz had lost Michael Landau to Olivia Newton John. I knew of Boz's reputation of working with brilliant musicians and the legacy of guitarists that had gone through the band prior to Michael, so it was very humbling to be a part of that lineage. I learned more about playing the guitar in one tour covering the guitar parts on all those great records than I probably had learned in all my years prior.
