Here resides the latest B-Day Web Pages
who have signed or will sign the calendar soon--
The band I have seen them with is in parenthesis, or Chicago, if they play locally here.
There are a few exceptions mentioned, which have not signed the calendar.

My own jazz Bday calendar when released will have complete Bday database documentation
such as where born, what year, what instrument, for signatures and those jazz greats
that have passed or I have yet to meet and register in the jazz calendar data warehouse.
