First rehearsal tonight.
Doc said after the first tune, “I’m glad we’re doing this!”. Well Sir, we are glad as well!
Not only are we lucky enough to hear and play with Doc, but we also have the juggernaut Ernie Watts with the band. My goodness!! Serious Heavy-weight!
The rest of the saxes and rhythm section have traveled here with Doc. A great group of local guys comprise the brass section. Its a nice blend and wonderful to have a group of guys who know each other in the back. I think the tour holds great potential.
I am very excited to play with this band.
