BUDDY COLLETTE

Our good friend, Jazz Great Buddy Collette, died in September 2010, aged 89. We were privileged to stage his last two Big Band Concerts, and worked with him on a number of charitable ventures, a documentary, and a motion picture. If you care to browse our website, you will see a number of photos, and references, including Buddy, which will remain, with pride, while we work on a fitting tribute.
