Rob Scheps April 19, 04
Wayne was my friend in NYC . He was a fan of the Rob Scheps Coretet; he used to record all our gigs on a walkman, like a latter day Dean Benedetti. I played in his Big Band, stayed at his house, had lunch with him. He was a great person, very encouraging to me as a younger musician. On April 26, 2004 , my Big Band will start to learn a piece he gave me before he passed. Entitled " Blue Wayne" , it reflects his humor, sense of swing, and forward- looking writing style which was influenced by Brookmeyer's classes. He's missed.
