At the Fire House as part of the Rehoboth True Blue Jazz Festival in October, 2018.


I'm on The Beast, the Hammond B3, along with saxophone great Vince Lardear and the incredible Jackie Browne on drums.  Vince is truly one of if not the greatest sax player on the east coast.  Jackie Browne has many times been compared to Buddy Rich in his dexterity and excitement, as well as he finess and technique.  I consider myself fortunate every time I get a chance to work with such great players!  It's an real honor and treat, every time.


This year we also had a special guest visit...our own Delaware great Tony "Big Cat" Smith on trumpet (pictured below) with me.  We brought the house down for a second year in a row!   Eddie Sherman and Peggy Whaley promote a great event each year.  I hope you get a chance to visit the festival.

I remember seeing Ernie Watts with Clark Terry at Glassboro State with the Buddy Rich Big Band.

Playing with Ernie was a real treat for me.  He is truly one of the legends of jazz today.
