This is the second group: Nathan Hiltz (guitar), Ben Dietschi (sax), Patrick Boyle (trumpet), Robin Jessome (trombone) , Rob Fekete (hiding...on keys)...the alto sax player was great...but his name escapes me.
Freddie Hubbard and standards meant for a more "mainstream" experience. Patrick provided fun patter, even introducing the musicians in the style of Bob Parlocha.
Paul Read was there as well, taking many photos. Paul is a wonderful musician/composer/arranger/educator - on staff at the U of T and has headed up the jazz studies program.
Deciding if I have energy to go the Rex tonight for Fabio Ragnelli...if not, he is there all this month on Wednesdays.
Pat Collins' Quartet is also at the Rex on Friday at 9:45...chance to say hello to our Mohawk contact and to hear Mike Murley (the York contact)...
