Ben Hirsh Sidran (born August 14, 1943) is an American jazz and rock keyboardist, producer, label owner, and music writer. Early in his career he was a member of the Steve Miller Band. Sidran was raised in Racine, Wisconsin, and attended the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1961, where he became a member of The Ardells with Steve Miller and Boz Scaggs. When Miller and Scaggs left Wisconsin for the West Coast, Sidran stayed behind to earn a degree in English literature

Sidran and Miller went back more than a decade before that as friends and collaborators, first in the Ardells in Madison, WI, and later in the Steve Miller Band. This is one of those cuts that Sidran may never play again, but it's amazing and a wonder that the breaks and B-3 interludes have never been sampled.
