''My first recording as a leader was a trio with Howard Roberts on guitar and George Duvivier on bass- a 10'' LP made for Pacific Jazz in 1955. This album was virtually the first recording made with the focus on the members of the rhythm section as lead instruments. Fifty- three years later we've recorded 'It's About Time!' in the same trio format with Cary DeNigris on guitar and Paul Ramsey on bass. These two brilliant players are my right hand and my left hand.''

We are putting the finishing touches on the Savannah Jazz Festival (Held in late Sept) & I wanted to ask the panel for suggestions about who might, in your festival experience, be a great singer to front a big band. The singer would have to have big band charts.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
