I’m very excited to participate in this worthy event. When James Moody’s wife contacted me to invite me to perform, she asked if I knew and could play “Darben the Red Foxx”? As it turned out, I had transcribed that tune and James Moody’s solo back when I was going to MSM as part of an independent study on jazz flutists! Now I’ll have a chance to play it, finally.
