Guess who's getting married. That's right, my youngest (31-year-old) Tim will be getting married. This good lookin' Alaskan Aleut, seen here playing in his dad's band, at his older brother's wedding some years back, will be marrying his fiance, April, next week in Oregon.

Saturday, went to the Steinway building downtown for Tom Lambert's concert. Lena Gonzales was the sole vocalist, but the biggest change was that Alto sax player Bill (somethin') left the state and was replaced by Tony James on guitar. Fantastic! Even though the theme was "Women vocalists in Jazz", Lena took up percussions for Herbie Hancock;s "Cantaloupe Island" and Miles Davis' "Freddie Freeloader". Bridget Sullivan (Tom's other singer) wasn't there. I think she was doing at gig at Mad Myrna's that night. She will be singing "Shadows and the Light" on my next CD. Tony’s gonna be in the Spenard gig on the 22nd, and I’m takin’ my ax, too. Hope to see you all there.
