Steve Martin Funkin' (and Folkin') It Up With "King Tut"


9 oct. 2009, 0h13m

I rediscovered Steve Martin's rap song "King Tut" while listening his 1978 "A Wild and Crazy Guy" comedy album. Nice track!

I initially assumed that Steve Martin was backed by session musicians (e. g., the baritone saxophone may have been played by Steve Douglas), or by the studio band of NBC's Saturday Night Live.

Surprise, surprise: The real backing band are the Toot Uncommons - members of the country-folk group The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

Here is the video (the saxophonist stepping out of the sarcophage is Lou Marini):
