I was delighted to receive a call from my old friend Thomas Gansch the other day. Thomas is a fine trumpet player from Vienna, Austria who I got to know during numerous visits to the Jam Session at the wonderful Porgy & Bess Jazz Club there. He was calling to invite me to go and play with his band; Gansch and Roses; on their short tour at the end of April.
I checked out some of their stuff on YouTube and it really should be a lot of fun. Not only will it be a different gig from my normal Rat Pack escapades but a really interesting and challenging one at that. I’ve added the dates to my schedule and will confirm more details of the venues as I’m told them! If you’re reading this from Austria then try and come out and see us!
