jazz at the franklin

Brevan Hampden & Friends played at the Franklin Hotel Sunday night...

Brevan led from the drumset, occasionally spelled by trombonist Ryan Robinson, so Brevan could play congas. Mark Wells played piano and sang; what a lovely voice. Al Strong, Brevan's bandmate in Orquesta GarDel, was there with his trumpet, and Brian Horton with his elegant inventions on tenor sax. Sitting in (between bites of a tasty looking burger) was Barney Branch on alto sax. Mitch Butler too, who is working long distance on his doctorate in trombone performance at UT-Austin.
