12/24/2007 Jet Set Planet


Had enough of Holiday Music? On Christmas Eve do you need the kinda rhythm that the Little Drummer Boy just can't provide? Look for those 3 Wise Men - Jack Costanzo, Willie Rodriguez, and Preston Epps - to show up and turn that ol' manger scene into a swinging Bongo and Conga party for the evening. Guest stars include Rosengarden and Kraus, Terry Snyder, and Mongo Santamaria.
