Chapin jazz

The other Chapin in my all-Chapin order was Thomas, no relation to Harry and Jen as far as I know, but one excellent jazz saxophonist, who died too young at 40 of leukemia. He plays alto and mezzo-soprano sax, and also flute, on "You Don't Know Me" and brings to mind Jackie McLean or a lighter version of James Carter. Tom Harrell plays trumpet on the disk, which I recommend highly.
