I have always been a great fan of the Stan Kenton Trpt Sections. Particularly those of the 50's and 60's. Does anyone know about the "where they are now" of some of those great players. I am particularly interested in Dalton Smith who played in the same section as Bud Brisbois. Tragicly, Bud Brisbois is no longer with us. But how about Sam Noto, Bob Behrent, Norman Baltazar, Phil Gilber and Lee Katzman? I know Conte Canoli passed away in 2003 and Marv Stamm is still very active (and very cool). These guys came from the big band age and set the standard. Any info is welcome.
P.S. I did find some amusing stories about Dalton Smith. He must have been (or is) a real character.
