Just a note on Hal Crook. Hal's one of the most talented guys around -- excellent teacher, writes great books, stellar arranger, and one bad ass improvisor. I remember many a time walking by an empty rehearsal room with nobody there except Hal 'practicing'. That is, playing a concert of some of the greatest improvised music you've ever heard. And I realize this sounds like hyperbole.....believe me, it's not. This guy is multi talented, but he's one serious player!!
