Our good friend and great trumpeter Don Eisaman passed away in early 2016. I worked with Don on hundreds of gigs as did many others. He was a great player who played with many of the Big Bands in the 40's and 50's. He was in the orchestra of the original Nat King Cole Show and performed in bands that that backed such artists as Frank Sinatra. Many of us who played often in The Ovations Big band got together for one last time on this day.
