Join host Michael Wulfsohn for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” on the Monday Night Beat at 8pm, as we take a listen to selections from flutist, Frank Wess’s 1971 release on the Memphis based, Stax/Enterprise Records label, “Wess to Memphis.”  This album was recorded the same year, at the historic Muscle Shoals Studio in Memphis, TN.  Backed up by an uncredited, Motown pick-up studio rhythm section, it also features saxophonist, Eli Fantane, from Marvin Gaye’s horn section from the 1971 “What’s Goin’ On” hit single.
