Waitin’ for the W. T.: W. T. Preston Jazz Band
“The W. T. Preston Jazz Band was started by Ben Root, an Anacortes trumpet player who loved New Orleans-style jazz and wanted to put together a local group to share his interest (and named it after the old paddle wheeler now being used as a museum in Anacortes). Ben gathered several of his musician friends and began to play Dixieland Jazz. After his passing in 1997, Norris Hooten took over, and Pat Rein joined. The group expanded its repertoire to include tunes from the 60’s through the 80’s (in Dixieland style).” –CD leaflet.
