Saturday 5-6pm cafe/restaurant in Annapolis, Md.

Septet (drums bass, piano, guitar, trumpet, alto and tenor), 3rd of 3 amateur jazz bands to play:

Nostalgia in Times Square
Green Dolphin Street
Witch Hunt (with an unstructured free-form transition into)
All Blues
It Don't Mean a Thing....

SOTW member johnnysax was in the group before us - I am extremely envious of his sound, and he's a heckuva nice guy.

Also in the audience were Grumps and John (whose username I cannot remember). Two guys with monster chops who were kind enough to support us amateurs.
