Absolutely awesome. You guys are wonderful.
And such a great video "A Night In Tunisia"
with Conte, Lou , Monte and all the guys on that explosive sax front line.
Thank you Mr Flory

Love it

"JW: Were they hard to play?
"MF: Bet your ass."

That made me laugh out loud. Great stuff as always, Marc.

Ahhhhhh, the free concerts at the Pilgrimage Theatre--now the John Anson Ford Theatre. It's where jazz-minded Angelenos went on Sunday afternoons in the spring and fall Sunday afternoons in the '70s and '80s. Trumpeter Conte Candoli, saxophonists Jay Migliori, Ray Reed, Med Flory, Lanny Morgan, Jack Nmitz, pianist Lou Levy, bassist Monty Budwig and drummer John Dentz. So many fine musical voices, now stilled except for Med. Those were indeed the days.
