Hello from Rochester NY:
MUSICAL NOTES AND SPORTS ITEMS...
▲ Roger Eckers and I will continue to be playing every weekend at Charley Brown’s until I move to Frontier Field for the opening of the baseball season in April. Roger will be off three weeks this month for his annual gig in St. Lucia in the Caribbean, where he will be featured jazz artist as he has been the past few years. I'll be using some very capable replacements during his absence including guitarists Dan Schmitt & Glen Cummings.
▲ The Red Wings schedule is out and opening day is April 6th. I'll be looking forward to my 42nd season as their organist. Between the Wings games, occasional night club gigs and a trip to California, it should be a busy summer.
▲ The 17th Rochester International Jazz Festival, June 22-30, has announced six of their headliners. They are Seal, Alison Krauss, Boz Scaggs, Lake St. Drive, Jill Scott and Bela Fleck.
▲ Just read that 93 year old jazz vibraphonist and perennial poll winner, Terry Gibbs, just released a new CD and is still playing occasionally in the Los Angeles area. He should put an all-star “over 90” group together which would include Roy Haynes, Bucky Pizzarelli, Randy Weston, Jimmy Heath, Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Cavallo, Doc Severinsen & Tony Bennett...
all of them over 90 & still performing!
▲ Artists who will be appearing in our upstate area this month include; Earth, Wind & Fire, The Lettermen, Marshall Tucker, Dwight Yoakam, Postmodern Juke Box & Kid Rock.
