Don Butterfield, Harvey Phillips, or someone else?

I'd love the opportunity to play charts like this with an ensemble (Marty Paitch, Sauter-Finegan, etc.)

Tormé was such a multi-talented musician.

When Torme toured with Woody’s Band ( after Woody had passed), they addd an add’l Sax and a tuba to the group when they played in cities. Had the fun opportunity to play with them when they were here in WNY....great charts. Included wonderful Rob McConnell charts ( from the ‘Just Friends’ recording) too.....

When I lived out in L.A. as a teen I took lessons with Red. He was a fantastic teacher. He'd come out to the house, my mom would make a pot of coffee, then we'd hit the lesson, which sometimes would be 5 minutes or up to a couple of hours depending on the progress I was making. There are many, many things I learned from Red but the one thing that stood out was you've got to practice 6 to 8 hours a day, then you can go do a 4 hour gig. I do miss him.
