It was exciting and also scary to be eighteen and starting out in the major leagues of the band business,with the tommy dorsey band Under the direction of warren covington.
That was the "tea for two" band and if it wasn't enough for a young Kid to be traveling in fast company like that,add the allure of a hit record And the whole experience was unbelievable!
My guardian angel and i both felt,however,that i was in deep water a bit Over my
Mary was a singer,in her own right,and was traveling with her husband, Lloyd,who was the lead alto player and manager of the band.
She sat down next to me on the bus one night and explained that john o'connor,her agent,also handled johnny long's band who needed a trombonist right away.
Warren covington gave his blessings to leave adding that i was welcome back on the band anytime. I took him up on that offer later on when he needed a bone player for a weekend gig.
Besides warren"s dorsey band i occupied bus seats with a variety of bands,including: Tony pastor,les and larry elgart,the lee castle jimmy dorsey band,and Woody herman.
I became a charter member of clark terry's big bad band which was a Co-venture that he led with altoist phil woods,and trombonist melba liston. That band was a collection of all-stars including guys like zoot sims and Al cohn,gene quill,randy brecker and jimmy owens,ron carter and grady T!

I married a dutch lady who just happened to be a recording producer for The philips-fonogram company. Our first co-production was a son who we Named yasha.(we're no longer married but are friends)
After that i ultimately became a part of the recording scene in holland And western/eastern europe participating in hundreds of sessions as a Trombonist,composer/arranger,and producer.
