"We had a great time with Randy on the show, " commented 12SJ host Pete
Weber. "Besides the Clifford Brown tune Blues Walk and a wild Cherokee cutting contest with local musician Hermon Mehari, Randy provided the vocals for a tune he wrote for his forthcoming 'Brecker Brothers Band Reunion' CD/DVD—Musician's Old Lady's Blues. The cat can swing…and sing, too. And he's a master on that horn."
