    Recently had the pleasure of hearing Dave’s Son Dan (fantastic drummer) perform some of his dad’s sacred works along with his classics as a guest at a local RCC.

    • Wow, how fantastic!

        It was. Admittedly, I preferred the classics, but learning about and hearing his body of religious works was interesting since I had been totally unaware of the extent of his efforts in that area and hearing jazz integrated with Choir was a unique experience.

    Ok, that was pretty great, but I still like “Take Five.”
