2012: NTC is helping to promote a series of concerts by John Stephens' BMPAC ALL-STAR BIG BAND at Barbara Morrison's Performing Arts Center in Leimert Park. Every Sunday 4p.m. Barbara regularly 'guests' with the Band.
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.
