The picture shows me sitting next to Scott Wendholt (Trumpet,) and Chris Byars (Sax,) packed in a passenger van leaving the hotel on our way to the 50th Elmhurst College Jazz Festival with the Grammy Award winning Vanguard Jazz Orchestra
The band was in rare form last night. The students and teachers gave us a rousing ovation after our set.
Today is a busy day. Up early to fix breakfast for the family and clean the kitchen and get ready for two completely different gigs today.
First, I am excited to be back at “A Bronx Tale” on Broadway for the matinee today in NYC. The book requires a trombone and tuba double so I’ve been practicing the instruments together for the past few days.
Then, tonight I continue playing the week at the Village Vanguard which continues tonight with the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra for our 51st Anniversary. I am blessed for these opportunities.
We are very happy to announce that 2017 is the 51st anniversary. We, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra – established by Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, will perform the compositions of Thad Jones, Bob Brookmeyer, Jim McNeely and others from our library of over 300 tunes!
Come and join the celebration!
