ON THIS DAY IN 1988 

23 years ago today, I played my first flugelhorn-only concert (no trumpet), a recital at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall with the True Colors Big Band. The ensemble: Ken Schaphorst, conductor; Rob Scheps, soprano and alto sax; Kenny Brooks, soprano and tenor sax; Jay Brandford, clarinet and baritone sax; Andy Gravish, trumpet; Scott Cowan, trumpet; Dmitri Matheny, flugelhorn; Curtis Hasselbring, trombone; Josh Roseman, trombone; John Medeski, piano; Wesley Wirth, bass; Jim Harp, drums; Dov Schiller, percussion. Not a bad line-up.
