2. Up A Lazy River
3. Basin Street Blues
4. St. Louis Blues
5. Hollywood Blues (version of BB King's "How Blue Can You Get")
6. Closer Walk With Thee
7. When the Saints Go Marching In

Pete Fountain - clarinet
Oliver "Stick" Felix - bass
Jimmy Weber - trumpet
Tim Laughin - clarinet
Tom Maggiore - tenor sax
Mike Genevay - trombone
Bruce Elkinson - piano
Allyn Young - guitar
Bryan Barberot - drums

Had a chance to talk with Pete. He told me that he does visit my blog frequently and thanked me for the work I've done. He mentioned "Where the heck do you find some of the stuff!". I'm glad he likes it. Had a chance to talk with Oliver "Stick" Felix, long time bass player with Pete. I wanted to ask him some details about his career, he was very nice to talk with and mentioned he would look up the website. It was good to hear Pete and the band play. Keep tooting Pete!
