Frank Wess- 89 and Counting
Plastic Sax may not be particularly important, but a handful of important people monitor this jazz blog. I'd like to bring a significant milestone to their attention. January 4, 2012, will be the 90th birthday of Frank Wess. The Kansas City native and veteran of Count Basie Orchestra is still gigging and recording. He's also makes for a good interview. I'm putting you on notice, media and museum VIPs- you have almost eight weeks to find a way to acknowledge the man and his achievements.
