There's a series of 9 DVDs called Jazz Icons.
I played at Rose Hall at Lincoln Center, a while ago with Franks Wess, Jymie Merritt , and Phil Woods to kick off the DVD release. I'm on the Buddy Rich one from The Hague in 1978, including my composition, "Grand Concourse". Click here to view the clip.

Helen Schneider - I had the pleasure of playing and arranging for Helen and The Count Basie Orchestra at The Supper Club in NY, as part of the JVC festival a few years ago. It was quite memorable, being that it was Frank Foster's last appearance as leader of the Basie Band. HERE IS A CLIP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8IvKjqv_1A

Please stop by the Lenny Kaye Page. Lenny was my father and also was one of the great swing sax and clarinet players in the music business. Check out the picture gallery of him with some of the bands he had played with. (Including Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey.) There are seven sound clips. Go to the page for more clips!
Please check out my Jean Shepherd Page. Shepherd was one of the great humorists of our century, along with Mark Twain, JamesThurber and George Ade.
He had worked in all of the media. For those of you who aren't aware of him, (other than his movie "A Christmas Story"), take a peek. You won't be sorry! Might even open new worlds! (And possibly close a few!)
