Hi Andy:

Just an update vis a vis the NW windpassers new CD I'm recording @ the end of May: This time, I've got another NYC connection -I've convinced Jerry Dodgion to come out and play lead alto for the sessions! I'm hoping a bit of the old Thad and Mel vibe rubs off on the band this time around!

hope your birdland gig is going well:

Chuck Wilson :

wow! ..we're one degree of separation ... :)

Hell yes! Small world dept appears again. Be sure and tell Chuck "Hi " from me .I even recall playing gigs with him back when I still played drums!

Have you bumped into any more of the former NTSU NYC mafia as well? ( Lou Marini - the late Jerry Chamberlain -Joe Randazzo -Bill Mays - -Marv Stamm among them )

Thanks for the nice words ...

Bluelonius was the LA band. The bass player was Tom Warrington and the lead alto was Lanny Morgan
( along with a whole herd of LA usual suspects.)
Chuck is still teaching up here @ WWU, but my usual bass player in the NW band is Chuck Deardorf from Seattle.

Hi Andy :

Found your band on you toob - again, really nice mainstream Basieish stuff . At least , you have the luxury of being able to do some live performances to keep the guys tuned in . In my case, the "bands" are spread all up and down the west coast and have necessitated my projects basically being studio recordings when I can get the proper guys corraled for a few days -( hence the NW /SW names on my CDs )
