In the middle of March I’ve been hired to play in the orchestra for the traveling Broadway show “The Rat Pack”, featuring the great tunes from Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. Maybe there is still hope for live music, when the companies will hire a full big band! Keep swinging!
Late September is the time for the Kemah Jazz Festival here in Houston. I played the Friday night show with the Musician’s Union Big Band and guest soloist David Fathead Newman. Then it started raining…I was supposed to play with three different bands on Saturday; nothing!
