My Husband Makes YouTube

For the past few months my husband has been playing trombone with Bones West, a volunteer trombone group founded by the great George Roberts.

Roberts, it so happens, was the solo trombonist on my all-time Frank Sinatra track, "How Deep is the Ocean?," which appears on Sinatra's Nice 'n' Easy.

Last month Bones West played at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) convention in Anaheim. My husband had quite a thrill when the group played an arrangement of "Blues in Hoss' Flat" which he'd transcribed for trombones, and trombone legend Bill Watrous soloed.

Lo and behold, but that number has turned up on YouTube. My husband is playing in the front row; he's got brown hair and glasses, a couple players to the right of the conductor.

YouTube contains at least one other clip from the show.

Technology is a wonder!
