Lou was the most, fluent enjoyable Trumpet player I ever played with. He would always listen to you and say, "Your the Best". Being the trombone player and he, the one handed trumpet player, you had to play dodgum with his left arm.He was a fantastic club showman always talking to everyone who came into his Daughter's Restaurant, The Road House, playing at their table and on the bandstand whatever song they asked. He always made sure you played the right thing with him and he told such crazy tales on the mike that people would ask you about it afterward. You would have to get him to tell them not to believe everything that he said on the mike. Always Happy when playing, no mater what was troubling him. Lou was fun and I learned something every night. So I say keep Swinging up there with all of your friends; I 'm sure you are making Great Music.
