Many years ago I was music director of the New Orleans Jazz Club of
California )the one Bill Bacin started) and one Sunday afternoon a friendly
sort of guy approached and asked if he could be included on a set. A little
questioning revealed that he was just visiting, that he hailed from Boston
and that yes, he played with a band there.
"I'm a priest," he said, "and the band is the Friar House Five Plus Two."
Well of course we got him on a set!
