|Preston Love is one of the most respected alto saxophonist of his
time. The Preston Love Orchestra was the top orchestra in the Midwest
for several years before Preston moved to California in 1962. While
in California, he became a top studio woodwind player and made countless
recordings and television shows with nearly every big name artist.
As a leader of the West Coast Motown Orchestra, Preston was the
regular bandleader for the following when they were on the west coast;
The Supremes, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles,
The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and
others too numerous to mention. Prompted by his love for Omaha
and the Midwest, Preston returned to live in Omaha. The record album, "Preston Love's Barbeque" has been successful
nationally and is available along with his hit single, "Sissy Popcorn." Preston
can also be heard on alto sax and baritone sax on the 1970 Monterrey Jazz
Festival album on Epic Records.
