A band of buddies, the Sequoias, played at New York City’s tony private Century Club last night. One of the opening acts was Peter Duchin, opening only because he had to get home to bed at a reasonable hour. I was not there, but I don’t think it is out of line to praise a band of 50+ dudes playing the classics as if they were born rockin’ (helped by babysitter LaChrisha on vocals). Most weren’t.
Peter Duchin Orchestra playing Superfly is a different type of remnant.
