Here at the Monterey Next Generation Jazz Fest with the Frost groups – The Stamps Quintet, JV I, and Extensions. The Stamps group performed yesterday evening and sounded truly amazing. Astonished they came in second, but competitions are what they are. They guys played a set worthy of a NY jazz club – very mature playing and group concept. Congrats are very much in order. Also very proud of alto saxophonist Sam Hart, who won an outstanding soloist award.
