PBS Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis

17 August,Trumpet players.
Who was the White guy who did Funny Valentine?

Haven’t seen the show, but Chet Baker did a record of that.

The guests were Clark Terry, Roy Hargrove and Chris Botti; I obviously don’t know who was who.

Clark Terry is an old black guy, Roy Hargrove is a young black guy, and Chris Botti is a young white guy.

Thanks, I’m off to Ebay looking for Botti ans Terry.

Oh man, I missed that?

I got to meet Lewis in 1991 when he came to perform in the mountain resort I used to live in. I was the stage manager at the local Performing Arts Center.

Quite the gentleman, extremely friendly and approachable, and one hell of a pianist.
