    The place was jammed. Mike's band did justice to Dizzy's music. The trumpet section was happening.
    They were-
    Larry Gillespie
    Freddie Hendricks
    Nabaté Isles
    Jack Walrath
    Waldron Ricks
    Jimmy sounded fabulous on that Alexander rotary flugel. His arrangement of the oldie"Blue and Boogie" was a display of his great arranging chops. The trumpet section really shone when each one of the players got their own solo space to stretch out. Charlie Persip and Paul West were there from Dizzy earlier bands.
    ............And the price was a bargain by NYC standards.
    It was an enjoyable night out.

    Hi Wilmer,

    Sorry I missed this - sounds like it was a great event. As you know Jimmy is one of my favs.

    Maybe we can hang soon and go hear some music. Let me know. Have you begun teaching at The Colin Studios?


    Cheers,
    Spitty
