An interesting note - Most Gunsmoke fans know that Ken Curtis was actually a great singer - he replaced Frank Sinatra on Tommy Dorsey's Big Band. That was why he went to Hollywood. But on this episode - another actor - Med Flory
(Sheriff Van Berkle) was an accomplished Jazz Saxophonist and leader of a well respected Jazz group - "Super Sax" -
which took classic Jazz Solo transcriptions of Jazz Legends
such as Charlie Parker, etc and voiced them for an entire
Saxophone section - very intricate Jazz Recordings.
