Not a day has gone by when I haven’t thought about and missed our friend Ross. With the recent passing of guitarist Jeremy Hepner (far too soon) I was thinking about Ross more than usual the last few days. I got an email from my friend Dean Hirschfeldt today that contained a few attachments. I was both full of joy and full or sorrow when I opened them. This is us with Bill Coon, Lewis Nash and Peter Washington at the jazz festival last year! I miss you Roscoe!
