A live unrehearsed performance by Dick Cully and his big band of Sammy Nestico's great chart written for Count Basie featuring Joe Trunzo on tenor sax and Teddy Mulet on trumpet for the South Florida TV Show "Something On Seventeen" at the studios of WLRN-TV in Miami, Florida. (THIS WAS A WORKING BAND - 4 gigs a week) IT was NEVER rehearsed and a group in progress. University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University students employed and earning a living. Read what Sammy Nestico has to say:
Dick: I am flabbergasted, thanks ever so much, I am impressed and deeply grateful. Your band is fantastic. I've heard so many renditions of my music that I was disappointed in. I worked shortly with Gene Krupa, and I wrote a couple of things for Buddy Rich ... making it another thing we have in common.
What a treat to hear (and see) your band play my music. I wish to profusely thank you for the many you-tube numbers that you have sent to me. They were fun listening to, but by far the best were from your band. I can't thank you enough.
Good luck with all your music and endeavors.
