LOS ANGELES — Steve Douglas


LOS ANGELES -- Saxophonist Steve Douglas, who played with performers ranging from Sam Cooke and Elvis Presley to Barbra Streisand Frank Sinatra, collapsed and died of heart failure Monday during a recording session at a Hollywood studio.

Mr. Douglas, 55, whose real name was Steven Kreisman, played the blues with Duane Eddy and the Rebels at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater in 1958, and with Elvis Presley on the set of the early 1960s movie "Girls, Girls, Girls."
