Gone Camping Edition

The family and I are leaving within the hour for the mountains to camp for the rest of the weekend. 

I wanted to quickly acknowledge Darcy's post on Bob Florence's passing, he includes a wonderful story from Ingrid Jensen.  I play in a big band where his charts constitute a bulk of the book and they are always a joy to play.  His writing was a big factor in my decision to pursue arranging as part of my aesthetic.

Also, not sure of the street date of this but The Saxophone Summit has a new recording on the way.  Here is a bit from Bret Primack's video page.  Some wonderful words about Brecker here.  Lieb sums it up well with his comments.  Thanks to David Valdez for hipping me to this...

Enjoy the weekend....
