“Serenade To A Bus Seat” – A Tribute to Clark Terry

Mike Vax-trumpet, Tony Vacca-sax, Howard Alden-guitar, Joel Robin-piano, Selwyn Reams-bass, Ken French-drums

Mike Vax was honored to be the lead trumpet player for Clark Terry’s Big Bad Band back in the late 1970’s. Clark was a mentor and close friend to Mike for over 40 years. Mike was even the “party planner” for Clark’s 90th and 94th Birthday parties. This concert will celebrate music that Clark wrote, recorded and enjoyed playing. There will also be some great old road stories from Clark’s life. Come share the 99th birthday month of one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time.
