On June 8 & 9 I will be playing with the Count Basie Orchestra in South Florida. June 9 is at the Coral Gables Congregational Church at 8 PM. Tickets $30 & $45. I'm subbing for Doug Lawrence on the "Hot Seat" - The jazz tenor chair, formerly occupied by Lester Young, Frank Foster, Sal Nistico, and Jimmy Forrest. I have no pretense of being any of those great players, so I'm going to be me - for better or worse. It's a dream come true.
