Russ Klein

And now, here's one of the fine saxophone players from the Welk orcehstra...Russ Klein!

From 1957 to 1982, he was a mainstay in the reed section....making his own mark in rhythm and rhyme

The native of Worcester, Massachusetts (same place where Norman Bailey is from) previously played with the David Rose and Freddy Martin orchestras.

Also, he was married to the Maestro's personal secretary Lois Lamont from 1975 until his passing in 1996.

And you watched from many reruns that Russ sure can swing on the sax!
