They Said Goodbye to Brookmeyer.

There is a wonderful report of the memorial service held at St Peter's Church Manhattan on Doug Ramsay's famed blog Rifftides.
The report is by David Sherr who collates perfectly what must have been a moving experience for those remembering the great valve trombonist/pianist/composer/arranger. Bob Brookmeyer died Dec.15 last year aged 81.
Lance.
PS: I remember hearing Brookmeyer with Giuffre at Newcastle City Hall. The latter was riding high with his recording of The Train and the River from Jazz on a Summer's Day but this version was even better!
