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 where he continues
to make national tours with
many name artists as their back-up bandleader.
Between these tours, Preston
heads a versatile group of musicians which
is still available for bookings.
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.
