This is an album of old photos my brother and I found and scanned after our father passed away. He was a great musician who worked with many stars of the late 1950s - 80s including Frank Sinatra, Les Brown, Barbra Streisand, Lena Horne, Lainie Kazan and Bobby Vinton. While in the Air Force (before his professional career), he was the sergeant in charge of the band. He brought two other great drummers into the band, Grady Tate and Jake Hanna, and helped them learn to read music. While I was playing and touring, I would run into other musicians who worked with my father and they would tell me stories; I could tell they all had a genuine affection for him.
