That's great, but doesn't top that Four Brothers thing you did a year ago. I went back and found it. And downloaded it. Wow. Also checked out Sophisticated Lady. Now that's LOW! Thanks.

As noted, that was the Uptown Lowdown Jazz Band out of Seattle. The clarinetist (who switched to the silver bass sax and later the MKVI soprano) is John Goodrich, of Whitefish, MT. I played with John two weeks ago in Kalispell, MT (John on bass sax, me on soprano, with the rest of the Rocky Mountian Ragtimers at their weekly gig in Kalispell). Fun gig!

The cornetist in the white shirt was Dan Comins, of Burbank, CA, who leads the Titanic Jazz Band. The leader of Uptown Lowdown is Bert Barr (the cornetist in the red shirt) and his wife, RoseAnn played the piano.

The second sax (alto and bass) I don't know, but their regular guy in that chair is Paul Woltz, who is ill, from what I understand. I've played with most of those guys many times. They are wonderful players in the traditional-jazz style.

Always good to see my kinda music mentioned on SOTW. John Goodrich is a worldcalss reed player. DAVE

Mike Brignola, bari player with the Woody Herman band, dared me to do the Four Brothers (an octave down) and provided me with the arrangement to do it. It's also on my MYSPACE page.

Now Mike wants to do FIVE saxes one octave down (Bari, bari, bass, bass, contrabass) and film it for U tube. The problem is, everyone who is capable of doing it is always working and we can't get it together.

That was amazing, but I've got a question: Do I have to have you as a friend to download your clips? Or do you have a CD somewhere with all that fun stuff on it that I might be able to buy?

I have my myspace page set so that clips can't be downloaded, but try this site. It might work for downloads:
