“On behalf of the Albany High School music faculty, I would like to thank you for your wonderful presentation to the jazz ensemble yesterday! The students were buzzing with the information after class and we even continued the discussion into the lunch period in the music office. I didn’t know you worked with the Mingus Big Band! We performed ‘Haitian Fight Song’ and ‘Moanin” in recent years, the kids absolutely love his music! Thank you so much for sharing your story and knowledge with our students!”
