    Tom's a nice guy. I'm in Gonzaga U. bigband not G Prep actually, so I'm sure we didn't meet - I didn't go to Hampton last year.

    see you there maybe!
     
  5. AT the Gonzaga Jazz night last year? That was where the Gu and the Gprep bands played at gprep last year? if you played in the GU jazz band last year, then we did, but if you didnt, then we didnt...

    yeah I'm pretty sure they are. Charlie Shepherd, from Issaquah, is playing in Whitworth's big band.

    Only reason why I'm not going is my favorite jazz bass player Christian McBride isn't going to be there (atleast I didn't see his name listed). Eh, maybe he'll show up next year.

    Oh hey darth, just reading your profile, what'd you think of Eugene Jablonski as a teacher?
     
  13. Ive never had him as a teacher. Ive heard that hes really good, but one of those teachers that not everyone will be into... if that makes sense. Ive only heard good things about him ...
     
  14. if you go to the site and read some of the press releases, it says that christian will be there, to pay tribute to Ray Brown, And Lionel Hampton...
