One night only, the original underscore from UNCLE played from the original charts by a six-piece combo, “The Summit Six Sextet,” that totally nailed the rhythms and arrangements in an hour-long performance in the hotel nightclub. A labor of love and a gift to us all from Jon Burlingame, and event organizers Robert Short and Jon Heitland, much to the delight of Gerald Fried, whom we were privileged to have in the audience. Our appreciation to (L to R) Steve Rosenblum on sax, Yu Ooka on guitar, Dean Koba on drums, Jon B., Robert Short, Nedra Wheeler on bass, Mr. Fried, Dave Iwataki on keyboards, and combo leader David Lamont on flute.
