“Every time we get together, it’s a renewal,” said trumpeter and band leader Rick Lundquist. “There’s a certain magic in recapturing youthful dreams. It becomes a hand holding with the past and the future , all at once.”
“In a way this all seems impossible,” said trombonist Bill Harman, who kept his day job as an aeronautical engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Other band members are Danny D’Imperio, drums, Jeff Haskell, piano, Jay Leonart, bass, and Bob Kindred, saxophone and clarinet.
