Dal Richards gives us a listen

Our Sanctuary All Stars 17-piece band put on a very entertaining concert last Sunday at Jazz Vespers here in Vancouver. Featuring the music of the great Count Basie Orchestra, we apparently made several new converts to jazz. Coastal Jazz and Blues, are you listening? Dal Richards, the big name in big bands in Vancouver, attended the concert with his wife and stayed 'till the end. He didn't come up and say 'hello' though, but maybe that's just his way. From my point of view, it may have been the band's best concert yet.
