    With his 16 piece big band. All I can say is Wow. Dude is almost 85 and is unbelievable, you'd think he'd let the band do all the work but he's still soaring into the stratosphere on almost every song, and can nearly make you cry on the ballads. Took my (12 year old trumpet playing) son for inspiration, I'd say he got some! He was amazed.

    Good on you for giving your son that experience! That's awesome. I'm jealous, I've only seen our good Doc on the tube (the TV tube).:-)

    He said last night was the last night of the tour. I was disappointed at the size of the crowd. I think it wasn't advertised well. I'm still amazed. I'll be happy if I'm walking at 84.

    I saw him live about 16 or 18 years ago. Had a front-row seat about 10 feet from him...it was fantastic.

    My first was Maynard Ferguson at age 15! He inspired me, hope it does the same for your son.

    He came out with that trumpet screaming above double high c from the first riff and kept it up for two hours.

    Doc is still one of those guys I listen to on a cd, and I think, How did he do that???
