We are going to hear the always wonderful Don Slatoff
. Many of you heard Don before and he is always a big hit!
Don Slatoff says he's been fortunate to be on the jazz scene in New York since the early 70's, performing in a wide variety of venues with many remarkable musicians. Maybe some of you remember the legendary Monday nights at Ali's Alley with Jaki Byard's Apollo Stompers - Don was part of that band (first on tenor, then years later on baritone), part of Ray Draper's big band at Small's (when it was still in Harlem), Charlie Persip's Superband, the Microscopic Septet, the Big Apple Circus, etc.,etc.
In recent years, Don has been devoting himself to the bass clarinet, showcased with his group the Jazz Circus (recently expanded to include Trumpet!)
