Here's the latest bday list (Celebrating their birthdays in SCORPIO, and 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 that have not signed the calendar that I mention.


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

HELP me out with the ones that are question marks
