Thad Jones – Mel Lewis band 1968

When I was about 16 years old living in a tenement house on 23 st in Manhattan, I use to stand outside The Village Vanguard to hear this band every week, The door man would let me sit in a chair inside  as long as I stood out of the way…The band was swinging the room on fire every time they played…It was like a life ago, and yesterday at the same time…Great memories…Smokin Band!
