Once again I dropped by LACMA on a Friday evening

for free summer jazz. Frank Strazzeri was there and the cool West Coast

sounds were blowing with tones that please in the cool summer breeze.

Frank was holding down the fort with some LA’s finest  players

in his band. On Drums, my man Don Littleton, holding together an even

foundation of tits and tats because he does it like that! George Harper

plays Tenor in the front line along with Dick Forrest on Trumpet.

Harvey Newmark rounds out the rhythm section on bass.

Frank has been playing jazz music for a long time

and he continues to maintain such a wonderful touch. Skill, experience

and technical excellence is always displayed while playing standards

which include tune from many of the greats, Charlie Parker being the

one that sticks in my mind. 

Friends and family all came out to

experience great music and the sounds of jazz music in the summertime.

Come on out to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and be a part of

the music yourself!
