Herb Hardesty is most known for his association with Fats Domino, beginning in 1949, where he has been the featured sax soloist for most of Domino’s recordings. His easy, upbeat, distinctive style has been a trademark of Fats’ music and can be heard on rock and roll classics like “I’m Walkin’,” “Ain’t That a Shame,” “Blue Monday,” and many others. During his prolific career, Hardesty has worked with Hall of Fame Inductees Lloyd Price, BB King, and Little Richard as well as Tom Waits, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dr. John, and Frank Sinatra.
