Trombonist Sonny Russo is our on-air guest
Trombones and stories are featured today to celebrate Sonny's birthday.
Sonny will bring music of his own choosing, and we're sure
a story or two! A native of Brooklyn, Sonny played with Frank Sinatra
for over 20 years, the Sauter-Finnegan Orchestra for 10,
and the Tonight Show Band (with Johnny Carson) for 7 -
just to mention a few stops during his nearly 60-year career.
We won't forget the Jazz Calendar, the late Nat "King" Cole's
90th birthday he would have celebrated on this St. Patrick's Day,
nor Dave Frishberg's 76th birthday coming up March 23.
