Walrath and Amitai

It was about a year ago that Jack Walrath and other members of the Charles Mingus Workshop jammed with student musicians at Stanford including a promising trumpet player I befriended named Amitai.

edit to add, April 2: I spoke to Jack Walrath briefly Saturday, spurred on by meeting the NoLa styled jazz band I met at a computer-themed street fair on High Street in Palo Alto, including a guy named Eric Burger playing a plastic trombone he said he bought for $150. Jack said he was not out here recently this year with the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Mingus project.
