    Bud was a big hit yesterday; at afternoon assembly he talked about his career, his education, the things and people that inspired him, lots of anecdotes. He streed the importance of being versatile, being able to meet any challenge, to be prepared.
    Here's a bit I hadn't heard: Bud and a couple other guys in the band and some of the stage hands were avid golfers. When they went on tour they had all these big black crates that carried the instruments, wardrobe, music, etc. So one of the stagehands made an identical crate where they could store ten golf bags, and marked it "miscellaneous equipment'. Thus they got to play golf wherever they went in the world. loved him.
    Then in the master class portion with the brass section from the orchestra he stressed of course air, singing through the horn, and emphasized to the trumpet players that they must play very strongly at times (he felt they were holding back). He really seemed to relish being around youngsters and they loved him. I hope he can come back, he's just a ten minute cab ride away.

    Ditto. Was it recorded or did someone video it?
