Really enjoyed those recordings Corky. Tight & grooving!
I can relate to you playing trumpet, as I played cornet in my high school band back then. Mind you, not very well, but was a blast!
One of my biggest joys back then, was playing our horns at a NHL game at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto with a couple high school band members. I remember blowing our brains out between stoppages in play getting the crowd ramped up. It was neat hearing 18,000+ clapping & shouting along with you. If I remember right, Toronto was playing the “broad street bullies” Philadelphia Flyers that night in 1974.
Sure beats the empty stadium covid times we have now.
