Speaking of Randy Brecker and Peter Erskine ...

Both played at Montgomery High School in April 2006 in a concert and day of workshops for young jazz musicians sponsored by a group called the Jazz Mentors Program. The program arranged several concerts that year, including a June date with the Woody Herman Band.
Both Brecker and Erskine were terrific -- Erskine performed with a new trio he was working with, The Lounge Art Ensemble, with Bob Sheppard on saxophones and bassist Dave Carpenter. I haven't heard their recordings, but they were a joy on stage.
