Jim was a good friend, personally and to the Brass. He was a featured guest artist with the group in the early years and continued to be supportive with financial help, publicizing our events and happenings, and getting us "gigs"! The Washington Post called him "the flamekeeper". To me he was the living legend who played every night, across the street from my apartment, at the Landing; the keeper of swing and the embodiment of time and timing in all things. He will be missed and remembered . . .
