Pete Main, clarinetist extraordinaire just talked to me on the phone and told me that last Saturday night in Martinez, he was playing with Ted Shafers band at La Beau's on Ferry Street, when Glen Calkins, trombonist, took out his opheclide, and Pete Main unleashed his recently purchased sarrusaphone, and they proceeded to play...probably the only jazz band in the world with that instrumentation...it will probably happen again this Saturday night, if anyone is interested! I wish I could be there! Jim Gammons on trumpet, Ted Shafer on banjo...
Just FYI...
Warm regards,

Because I play trumpet, I envy no one.
