Jimmy ... AMEN to that, brother!

You mention bands ... many of us playing in college marching bands here, in the southwest, envied University of Nevada Las Vegas' band ... one of the first college marching bands to go all drum-and-bugle ... AND ARRANGEMENTS BY MAYNARD FERGUSON !!!

When the Malouf family opened the Classic Hotel, in Albuquerque, back in the 80s, they did it with a gala affair that included entertainment by Ferguson and his band ... there were a LOT of young musicians from UNM in the audience, and we were mesmerized ...

I won't say "RIP, Maynard" ... because, 'peaceful' was never his style of music ...
