Leo Parker (April 18, 1925 - February 11, 1962) was an American jazz musician who played baritone saxophone. Born in Washington, . Parker studied alto saxophone in high school, and played this instrument on a recording with Coleman Hawkins in 1944. He switched to baritone saxophone later that year when he joined Billy Eckstine's bebop band, playing there until 1946. In 1945 he was a member of the so-called "Unholy Four" of saxophonists, with Dexter Gordon, Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons

This is a split album dedicated to the lost innovators of the baritone saxophone. Leo Parker did release a small handful of albums on Blue Note, although Melvin "Sax" Gill is more obscure (perhaps more known for his session work, if that). They both play a style of jazz that is post-big band, pre-bebop, the jump in the juke joint that was a precursor to R&B and rock'n'roll. The liner notes in the booklet more thorough about their careers. Leo Parker - Leo Leaps In (Take 3) 08. Sax Gill - Crisco Jump 09. Sax Gill - Dancer's Delight 10. Sax Gill - Shortening Bread 11.

Leo Parker played in Jacquet's group in 1947 and picked up some of Jacquet's stylistic devices, like riding on one note for quite a while and suddenly descending to the bottom regions of the horn. These traits are used by both baritone saxophonists on this disk. Leo Parker's tracks are the more succesful ones; Leo is the superior improviser and his musical ideas are quite logical even when using the lowest notes of his horn. His group sounds quite tight in their execution of the tunes, and an unnamed tenor saxophonist and anonymous pianist also get short solos.
