Happy Birthday to Eddie Jones (1929-1997), who along with Freddie Green anchored the rhythm section of some of the best Basie New Testament Bands of the '50s and '60s.

Happy Birthday to Benny Powell (1930) , a force in the great trombone section of those same bands. I understand the Benny is still on the scene, teaching in New York City. Slide 'em, baby!
