Todd Schefflin Performs With Frank Wess: 11/08/09

Todd, pictured on the left above, performed with the great Frank Wess at William Patterson College.
Saxophonist/flutist Frank Wess, a longtime featured soloist with the Count Basie Orchestra for more than a decade, brings his powerful solo voice and his well-known arrangements to the stage as he joins forces with the talented students of the William Paterson University Jazz Orchestra.

Todd is the son of the KV Rambo and the greatest southpaw pitcher in the history of the Two Bridges Little League, Murray Schefflin. btw, Murray's still smarting over the loss of the overall pitching honor that was won by Vinny Adimando.
