Here is a clip from a recent swing dance, that I found posted on "goswingdancing.com"

The band is listed on the web-sight as Jerry Costanzo. He's a singer that we often back up. The band is actually Andy Farber & his Swing Mavens.

This clip features the Mel Brooks tune "Springtime For (you-know-who)" from the movie and Broadway show "The Producers".

Yours truly on tenor.
Jerry Dodgion; ALTO
Jay Brandford; BARITONE

...and a bunch of cats NOT playing the saxophone.

Andy,
Thanks for sharing that. Nice playing (you and the band) and the arrangement is nice too.

Thank you verry much indeed! There are a bunch of other clips from the same gig on that sight.

Thanks! That was a substitute pianiste and bass player sight-reading the book.

It's hard to tell on youtube that I was blowing my silver plated BA with an old NY "Master Link".

Jerry Dodgion was playing the late Jerome Richardson's old mk6 alto, with a Morgan mpce.

Jay Brandford was playing his mk6 baritone with a rubber Berg.

Andy,

Great sound.

I met Jerry Dodgion a long time ago. I can't remember where...maybe playing with the Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Orchestra ?

Swingin. Here a lot of cats in your playing. Some Rollins language, but I really did the Griffin inflections.
