i was browsing through the bottom end of the alphabet and ran across this show from walter blanding, someone i know of only from googling him just now.  from his facebook page, it looks as if he’s (still) with the lincoln center jazz orchestra & that he’s just recorded a new album.  comments below, including a short bio, are from ‘relyles’ seed on dime in early 2012.
