As the holidays get closer, "special guests" always seem to flock to the Blue Note stage. In the past we've had special holiday guests such as Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel. Just last weekend, Clark Terry played for two nights with his young quartet, and Bill Cosby dropped by to check out the scene. Once he was recognized, Clark brought him on stage and they did a little routine that had the audience rolling.

Speaking of special guests at the club, Dave Brubeck and his quartet made their one-night-only appearance over the Thanksgiving weekend.

This week, the Dizzy band has had plenty of special guests on stage, and tonight's lineup will be no exception. Paqutio D'Rivera will join the band for both sets, and there are some rumors that trumpet virtuoso Wallace Roney will show up, along with Antonio Hart, Jimmy Heath, and Frank Wess! All are expected to sit in!

Between now and New Year's, don't be surprised to see some of your favorite jazz and pop stars show up and join whomever is playing!
