Interview with Bob Wilber (February 2013)
On Sunday, February 3, 2013, the Sidney Bechet Society hosted a private party at our headquarters in New Hyde Park, NY. Invited to perform were Bria Skonberg, Dennis Lichtman, Nick Russo, Jim Fryer, Sean Cronin and Ronnie Magrias.
Bob Wilber and Pug Horton came out from Manhattan along with Bob’s soprano sax. After the great jam session, we pulled Bob aside and did an impromptu interview. Bob regaled us with many great stories and insights about Sidney Bechet and other musicians he has known and with whom he has performed.
