Have not been able to visit with my jazz friends at their habitats lately. So it was a joy to be able to go listen to  Henry Darragh and his Sextet doing a live recording @ Ovations.

Dennis Dotson – trumpet, Andre Hayward – trombone, Seth Paynter – tenor, Glen Ackerman – bass, Richard Cholakian – drums, Henry Darragh – vocals/piano
