Don Capone, in Vertical/Tampa Bay

The new edition of webzine Vertical/Tampa Bay features several shots of late Tampa Bay area jazz drummer Don Capone, co-founder of my Trio Vibe group with vibraphonist Sam Koppelman.

Alongside the pix is a re-publication of the blog post I wrote about Don. Check out the Vertical feature here.

Vertical additionally spoke with Lenny Cruz, owner of Lenny’s Latin Cafe in Temple Terrace, home to a jam session that Don spearheaded for almost a year. Lenny told the magazine that a concert/jam in tribute to Don is in the works. When I get more info, I’ll report it here.  Tampa Tribune reporter Joyce McKenzie wrote about Don and the jam session, in a piece published in January 2009.
