In 1983, Brooks Tegler's HOT JAZZ, was soon-to-become highly acclaimed!
I contributed many original compositions and transcriptions to the band repertoire,
as well as being lead trumpet and jazz soloist. The band has since appeared at the following Jazz Festivals:
Sacramento * Central Illinois * Denver * Madison * Illiana Jazz * Pike's Peak Jazz Society *
Charleston, WV Jazz society * Manassas Jazz Festival * Potomac River Jazz Club *
Pennsylvania Friends of Jazz * New Jersey Jazz Club * Swinging Hannover * Paderborn * Dusseldorf *
Breda * S'Hertogenbosch * Apeldorn * Ghent/ Brugge, and more. HOT JAZZ finally dis-banded c. 1995
