Benny Golson still sounds fine, too, and hes finishing up his umpteenth Jazz Bakery stand this Friday and Saturday. And check out Catalinas on Tuesday, where theres a Tribute to Tommy Dorsey. Getting that utterly perfect, sweet trombone will be Bill Watrous; indeed, hell nail it, even on the valve. To really nail it he could beat someone up, fire a player on the stand, chase your wife but now were getting sentimental over Tommy. And the Clayton Brothers kick off their stand at the Jazz Bakery this Wednesday and Thursday (with excellent trumpeter Terell Stafford). We recall a Hollywood & Highland show a couple seasons ago in which the two of them just tore it up. It should be no different here. Treat yourself.

And for those with lots of bread, theres the Jazz Summit II, the California Jazz Foundation fund-raiser at Catalinas on Sunday. Its soliciting contributions for sick and needy players, with flutist Lori Bells bossas, the Gerald Clayton piano trio and the Dream Sextet, with pianist Shelly Berg, trumpeter Terell Stafford, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, sax and clarinetist Ken Peplowski, plus bassist JohnClayton and drummer Jeff Hamilton.
