Glen Daum -Trombone has recently passed away and was active as a composer, arranger and producer in New York for over twenty-five years, having written music for such varied television shows as ABC World News Tonight, CNN Headline News, General Hospital and Chip 'N' Dale Rescue Rangers. A five-time Emmy nominee, Daum has won the coveted award twice in three years for his work on Sesame Street, the acclaimed children's television show, for whom he was a composer for seven years. I was honored to have him as a member of the band and the work he did adapting some of my most coveted arrangents.

Pete has the most experience playing with some of the greatest Big band leaders. Pete also played Trumpet and Piccolo Trumpet in the original Broadway production of Les Miserables.
