Thanks for the Bob Flanagan piece.
I always enjoyed his playing with the Freshmen group, and I always thought he would make a great section trombonist in the Kenton band with that big sound of his.

With no discography to consult I wonder if Gray was one of the Five Guitars on that FF album (as would seem likely). I remember only Jack Marshall named in the notes.

If I'm not mistaken, Bob Flanigan "owns" the Four Freshmen and has been known to appear with them from time to time.

Your embedded links to YouTube have for some reason stopped working for me for a couple of seeks now? Anyone else having this problem, or is it at my end (despite my nearly new Macbook Pro??) Anyway, love your website.
