“Leading a big band is rewarding in the way you get a certain sound. It can also be a big headache. All the guys in the band are my friends. Ever tried to get fifteen of your friends working for you? However, the thrill is great. On the last set of the evening, I sometimes don't play more than four notes—I just stand there and listen.”
