2011 Tributes

I'm looking forward to some great centennial tributes this year, including one of my trumpet heroes Buck Clayton (Nov. 12, 1911). In addition, some other great trumpeters will be honored - Roy Eldridge (Jan. 30) and Cootie Williams (July 10), plus two legends of the Count Basie Orchestra and of swing - Freddie Green (March 31) and Jo Jones (Oct. 7). Last but not least, it's Louis Armstrong's 110th Birthday on August 4! What a great year - a big thank you to all these great musicians...you are not forgotten.
