I’ve been playing steady, most every day of the week, and enjoying it as well. My steady band is still the Pecos River Big Band http://www.pecosriverbrass.com/band/ . We just finished recording our 3rd CD. Our jazz trumpet player, Ken Edwards, just left for LA to play with the Maynard Ferguson Band – he inspired me to work even more on improvisation. Getting ready to start a bebop study with the Baker books. Still have a lot to learn, which makes the journey enjoyable and full of variety. I also do a lot of subbing in the North Dallas big band circuit (TI jazz band, Celebration, Swingtime and Crosswinds) and a group of us brass players perform about once a quarter at classical gigs with choirs/orchestras in the area.
