Live performance of Benny and Buster Moten's great tune (MOTEN SWING) arranged by Sammy Nestico at Old School Square Cultural Arts Center and National Historic Site, Delray Beach, Florida by the Dick Cully Big Band featuring Mario Escobar on tenor sax and Basie alumni Melton Mustafa on trumpet. Read what Sammy Nestico had 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.

Sammy Nestico
