For a great time at University of North Florida. Excellent undergraduate program directed by Bunky Green, enthusiastic big band run by trumpeter J.B. Scott, and experienced, expert direction from Clarence Hines, Lynne Arriale, Dennis Marks, Marc Dickman and others. It’s not often that you see this kind of enthusiasm for music, openness to learning, and inspiring craftsmanship. And it may sound selfish to say, but I learned a lot. Thanks and happy trails.
