This One Goes to 111 (and Beyond)

Happy Founders Day to my brothers in Sinfonia, a fine collection of men of music; we're 111 years old today and going strong. I look forward to celebrating with a lot of you in the area at Sunday's concert. At the moment, I'm listening to a tune by Brother Branford Marsalis, but, if you were so inclined, you could also fire up some Count Basie, Cannonball Adderley, Clark Terry, Maynard Ferguson, Herb Ellis, Jimmy Guiffre, Chuck Mangione, or countless others (go here for a ginormous list).

Filling in the blanks: Still catching up on old posts; it seems like, whenever there are distractions, blogging is the first to suffer. I'll get there...
