Detroit will not work in '08 because Ed has signed contracts with the
Hotel in Rochester already in place for June '08. Maybe in '09 if hotel
space is available at comparable rates with what Ed can get in
Rochester. I know he looked at other locations this past year and they
were cost prohibitive compared to Rochester. Hotel rooms might be
cheaper like in Las Vegas but they wanted to charge a TON for meeting
rooms and those add on items.
See ya in New York at Jazz Improv in October.

Growing up in Kansas City afforded Charles the opportunity to work with such jazz notables as Claude ''Fiddler'' Williams, Bobby Watson, Carmell Jones and many others who have made an impact on the K.C. jazz scene. With a stellar band featuring Ali Ryerson, Greg Gisbert, Ken Walker, Mark Simon, Eric Gunnison and Paul Romaine, Gatschet delivers an array of beautiful tunes, half of which are his own. Quoting from Dr. Herb Wong's liner notes: ''Jazz guitarist-composer Charles Gatschet's aesthetic backdrop and the music on STEP LIGHTLY, indeed, ignite reasons to step lively with felicity of Charles' mission in jazz.''
