    Pete Barbutti:
    Isn't he the guy that plays the melody with his nose?
    Saw him on the tonight show a few times. He's a heckuva funny guy too.

    Pete would do that....he would play the piano....he mostly told the funniest stories you ever heard...like the old guy with the trumpet in a paper bag.....

    He would bring a plunger and put it on the side of the piano, then put his cigar in the stick hole.

    He was / is a funny guy.



    Watch the look he gives the band when they come in!

    Check out his site....FUNNY STORIES

    I forwarded this to Brian McWhorter and told him I want to play this for my recital. For some strange reason I haven't heard back from him.

    That sounds like it could have been on the flip side of Lawrence Welk's "Calcutta" maybe featuring "our fine young ah-trumpet man Johnny Zell"!!!
