Bob Wilber/Glenn Zottola “Shaw Nuff”

I did a very successful tour with Bob Wilber for Smithsonian. It was a “History of Jazz” program starting in the 20s with Louis Armstrong and ending with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and everything in between a very demanding 2 hour show. Bob played Charlie Parkers solo on alto beautifully and I just closed my eyes and did my own thing not Dizzy’s solo. I used to carry a Sony portable tape recorder around and throw it under my bandstand.
