Elmhurst College Jazz Festival

I was excited at the chance to sponsor the Elmhurst College Jazz Fest this year for their 50th anniversary, including donating my first bass as the "house" bass for any bassist to play on.  It was very cool to see all the players who got to play on it and hear their feedback.  From the student performances to the professional ones, it was a great weekend for art in America!  Big thanks to my friend and mentor Doug Beach for his lifelong commitment to this program and jazz education in general.
