I’m a sucker for a big band. The Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra remains a personal favorite, but I have a fondness for the Airmen of Note, perhaps a residual attachment from the days of Joe Williams — Joe was Basie’s #1 son, but Joe spread his love around and liked this band a lot. So, if I were to be in DC later this month — I’m not, but if I were — you’d find me front and center at the Airmen of Note’s free concert — Blues Alley at 8 PM on April 25th.
