And I don't mean Louisiana. Some of Los Angeles' best instrumentalists playing tonight, Wednesday in Northridge at Las Hadas Mex Rest/Club, Balboa @ Nordhoff. If you're in town, you must see the AYD Big Band (Ain't your daddy's), with Rex Merriweather tearing up his Wild Thing to pieces fronting 19 smokin' pieces. Bill Lamb and Rob Sack in the back along with moi, Yamaha and Zildjian endorser Slammin' Sammy K. on the kit, Jerry Scott on guitar celebrating his bday.

If you're in LA, cancel your dinner plans and drop in. Hope to meet you masters!
