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.

 

THE ZEALOT 

The Zealot can explain neither the intensity of his enthusiasm nor the extreme degree of his uncritical devotion. Is he merely an inspired mortal, or is he possessed of a supernatural afflatus? What is the source of his fanatical belief/behavior?

"It may sound far away, but it's closer than you think!
One thing is for sure though. Trouble is trouble,
no matter where you are."
—Felix the Cat

"I think it's a fine thing that a man on the doorstep of death
can still look at a woman like me with what I call
deserved appreciation."
—Maggie the Cat

"We shall overcome!"
