Last fall, the Emerald City Orchestra, a phenomenal community ensemble led by my dear friend and high school chum, Tom Carr, had a very special concert featuring two professional musicians who were at West High School in Columbus in our era, singer Vicki McDermitt and trumpeter Ed Morrison. My brother-in-law, Ken Neff, is also a trumpeter in this ensemble.
'I Can't Get Started,' as originally recorded by Tony Bennett and Doc Severinsen, was covered by the group and served as the encore that left us wanting more!
There were two performances on two successive nights. The night Ann and I attended, we saw many of our classmates and, as always, it was like a family reunion!
