    It’s Cory, not Cody, Cox–a New School Jazz student of mine and Brubeck Institute alumnus. He and Chris Smith–a former New School student of mine–were subbing for that gig only, so Cory tells me.
    Oops. I’ll notify the Worcester Telegram Gazette—DR

    Brubeck told me that his regular rhythm section had another gig, so Russell Gloyd recruited the two students from the Brubeck Institute. He said, “We won’t be rehearsing, they know my tunes.”
