Rich Olsen "Yakety Sax" Band Organ Arrangement
By Matthew Caulfield

In the latest MMD (18.03.31) Gordon Ramsey posted an article about
progress on the Wichita Botanica Carousel Organ Project.  Among the
links that Robbie Rhodes added to Gordon's posting were some recordings
of that organ.

One of them was an arrangement made by the late Rich Olsen for me of
"Yakety Sax," which I had Play-Rite Music Rolls, Inc. issue on style
165 roll 6843.  Listening now to Rich's arrangement made me once again
realize what a talent Rich was and how much I miss him!

Oh, to turn back the clock!

Here is a link to Rich's arrangement of "Yakety Sax":
