#beginquote# Just got back from 100 Years and a Day: Doc Cheatham Centennial Jazz Party. Trumpets: Nicholas Payton, Clark Terry, Warren Vache, Randy Sandke, Jimmy Owens and Theodore Croker With: Howard Alden - Guitar Chuck Folds - Piano Jim Galloway - Soprano Saxophone Jimmy Heath - Tenor Saxophone Earl May - Bass Benny Powell - Trombone Catherine Russell - Vocal George Wein - Piano Frank Wee - Tennor Saxophone Jackie Williams - Drums and Phil Schaap - Host. Got the ticket through TDF and thought it would be fun and a change from classical music - and it was. Chuck Folds was my favorite, can he make the piano sing, I like the natural sound of the guitar, but Howard Alden had his plugged into the sound system and it changed the quality of it's sound so much that it was hard to tell when he was playing. These guys have been around for a long time, most are in their 80's, maybe one or two in their 60's. The guitar player and singer were the youngest. On the 15th I'll be going again this time it's called Piano Masters Salute Piano Legends celebrating Ellington, Evans, Hancock and Monk. We all know who Ellington is, but the others I don't know any more than I new who the players were tonite (6/14). But who cares, this is entertaining and fun - hope those of you who live in the New York area get a chance to attend some of these events. :) #endquote#
