Last Saturday I took my new horn on its first trip
to New Jersey. The
occasion was a jam session in Maplewood, a 40-minute train ride
from my cave here in Babylon on the Hudson. My piano playing buddy
John Cahalin invited me. He went to high school in Maplewood where
he played in a band with two of the guys at the session. In all,
there were seven of us: trumpet, trombone, keyboard, bass, guitar,
drums and a singer. We sounded pretty good if I say so myself.

of the session.
and I are playing in Jersey again in a couple of weeks, this time
in Toms River with the fabled Villanovans. I'll report on that
and probably have some photos to post.
