I had the pleasure of seeing him last night at a rehearsal for about 2 1/2 hours. He is in town to play a concert tonight with a local Community College big band. One of the trombone players in our big band also plays in the college band and got me in to hear him. The man can play some alto. Wonderful command of the horn with great technical skill. Lots of ability in the altissimo range and while this isn't my cup of tea, I do admire anyone that can play up there. He would look over a chart and then play it without referring to it again. Fine player and very personable and friendly.
