WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:15.000 [music] 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:37.000 COKER: Hi, everybody.AUDIENCE: Hello--woo! COKER: Welcome back 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:42.000 How many of you were here last night? [audience cheers] Crazy night. Wow. What a concert. 00:05:48.000 --> 00:05:51.000 It's just fun to be on this stage knowing that 24 hours ago there was just such a great show here. 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:56.000 So, I think some of that music is still flowing around, and we're going to play with that and have a good time tonight, too. 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:60.000 So, a big round of applause for our special guests. 00:06:00.000 --> 00:06:05.000 Mel Brown. [applause begins] John Lee. And Tim Gilson. 00:06:14.000 --> 00:06:20.000 Mel and I have been talking about doing something like this for 6, 7, 8, years. 00:06:20.000 --> 00:06:25.000 Almost as soon as we met, and so we finally got it together tonight. 00:06:25.000 --> 00:06:31.000 So this next tune. That first tune was a famous tune called 'Cute,' of course, you know, 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:37.000 perfect for playing brushes with a big band. Classic tune from the 50s. Neal Hefti. 00:06:37.000 --> 00:06:46.000 This next tune was written back in 1985, and in 1985, there were only two bands I wanted to be in. 00:06:46.000 --> 00:06:52.000 I wanted to be in the Count Basie band, and I wanted to play with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. 00:06:58.000 --> 00:06:62.000 I mean, it was worse for them of course. They died. [audience laughs] 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:10.000 But my dreams were dashed, and then when I moved up here and met Mel Brown and got a chance to play with him, 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:15.000 I thought, 'Aha. This, this is like playing with Art Blakey. 00:07:15.000 --> 00:07:23.000 So, this next tune was the first tune that Mel and I played together. It's called 'Don Wayne 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:27.000 and this tune is just built for him. 00:07:40.000 --> 00:07:45.000 (Sorry for the technical difficulties the video does resume)
