ALEX BUDMAN AND THE CONTEMPORARY JAZZ ORCHESTRA is next on the agenda with something so nice and free, called INSTRUMENTS OF MASS PLEASURE, much like the Joe Henderson Big Band with arrangements that are so very original and progressive and West Coast. We played "Little Prayer" and "Mood For A Time." These are all west coast guys and they play so very well, Alex Budman, Leonard Thompson, Tod Dickow, etc. And the Leonard Thompson. Trio with Lorenzo Farrell and Brian Fisher on drums. A miraculous Plan B...One of those great local big bands with thoughtful heavy young musicians, who learned their trade well and have a good young and talented saxophone/producer, Alex Budman. "In Case Of An Emergency" brings to mind those swinging hard bop signatures that Budman knows so well.
