Many, many thanks to Diedre for sending along these wonderful photographs. Ken Bausano dropped off the CD-ROM at NAMM last week and here are some of the highlights.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Ken-at-Bose,
Michael Nunley shocked everybody with his heavenly voice and beautiful guitar playing. It was amazing to meet some of the regulars here on the message board and find out what truly fine musicians they are.
Ken Bausano came to Ashland with a fistful of sheet music and in no time whipped together a great horn and rhythm section with two rehearsals, one of which is shown here. The band unleashed its music on the second evening of the conference, leading the way in one of the most enjoyable evenings of live music ever.This message has been edited.

Jay Davidson, musician extraordinaire (is there anything he doesn't play?) jumped into the fray like an old-fashioned circus clown, mixing things up and inspiring the musicians to dig deeper and go further. Jay plays in the Steve Winwood touring band, and the Shadows of Mowtown tour.
Here are two big musical protagonists for the night: Ken Bausano and Jay Davidson. Very different in their approaches -- one very organized, the other stirring things up with a big musical stick on the spur of the moment -- but both VERY effective at what they do.
