Happy Holidays everyone! This is some footage from a Boston Brass rehearsal a few years ago. Sam Pilafian and Harry Watters, two of the best brass players in the world, formed a jazz combo along with their rhythm section friends David Cutler on piano and Dan Hostetler on drums. They played a combo tune as a change of pace during one of our Christmas big band shows. They came up with the tune and started rehearsing it on the spot.
Watching such amazing musicians work so cohesively at the drop of a hat is truly amazing. Such groove, lyricism and storytelling.
Happy Holidays and enjoy!
