March Of Jazz 1995 celebrated the 80th Birthday of Flip Phillips. Our 2nd segment of the 2013 party film was chosen by Mat Domber even though it was included in Arbors DVD of that party in Deerfield Beach, Fl. Our thoughts & prayers are with Clark Terry & his family.
This selection was the Grand Finale at the party & included most all of the musicians.
Mat Domber passed away on September 19, 2012 but he will never be away from our hearts, as well as our ears & our eyes.
See our Memorial Page, and the first segment of the video that would have been shown at the upcoming Arbors Invitational Jazz Party, which has been cancelled. The video that Mat wanted to show was a review of of the past March of Jazz Parties, highlighting the musician honored in that particular year.
