BIOGRAPHY
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.
