Cry U Out of my Heart

(Frank Ace)
F. L. Wallace

I had this song in my heart for quite awhile, and I was playing with a young tenor-Alto sax player that was introduced to me by my best friend and bass player Rodney Cunningham, name Chris Baker.  He is by far one of the best players I have ever played with, and I have played with some badass horn men. Joe Houston, Big Jay McNeely, Virgil Lane, Mathew Washington, "Big" Jim Henry, Sidney George, Chris is at the top of my list.  He never rehearsed "Cry U', walked in, listen to the pain I had in my heart, and started to play...."it still brings tears to my eyes".  "If you ever get chance to see and hear Chris Baker...please do so."  You owe it to yourself...
