AN EDDIE MARSHALL MEMORYPosted By from March 17, 2012
On this day in 2001, Ruth Davies and I had the honor of joining Eddie Marshall as guest soloists with the San Francisco Symphony, in a jazz plus orchestra program at Davies Symphony Hall.
As the three of us took our places on stage among the sea of tuxedos, Eddie looked around at all the serious faces, then turned and smiled at us in that sly, conspiratorial way that only Eddie could smile.
"Well, it looks like they've got us surrounded," he said, sotto voce.
Ruth and I busted up laughing like kids in church.
Man, I miss that guy.
