And even better, he was an arranger for Count Basie. I had the chance to see the orchestra in the 1970's with Basie in a wheelchair. I sure he wasn't with Basie but he must have been a great arranger to wotk with such a fantastic Jazz Orchestra.
"Kidnapped" has now not only been cancelled, but completely pulled from the schedule (broadcastingcable.com) - it will be replaced by "Law & Order: CI" reruns. Apparently the last eight episodes eventually will be available on NBC.
