Cover picture for the article"We've known each other and have been playing together for fifty years now," was proudly, if even more sentimentally, reminisced by pianist Alan Pasqua in reference to drummer Peter Erskine to an intimate and appreciative audience at Sam First in Los Angeles during a recent performance. Bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz, who has been part of the mix for a "mere" twenty years, rounded out this stellar and superbly connected trio. Pasqua's warm hearted moment also included a remembrance of the late pianist Jaki Byard. Byard, you see, was one of Pasqua's instructors back in the day at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. One that he has a special fondness for.
