Can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this concert which I have been looking forward to for many months. It is good to be a kid in a candy store and get to play with my hero Doc Severinsen and the world's greatest jazz trombonist, Wycliffe Gordon.

PS...for those of you who do not know Wycliffe Gordon, you will soon...he is playing trumpet now as well and that should frighten all of us. The most clever move I made when hosting the ITG conference at Banff a few years ago was to feature Wycliffe on trombone. NO ONE in the world can humble a group of trumpet players like Wycliffe can...he kept everyone in check!!!

Best to you all...hope to see you in Toronto on Saturday, January 12.
