Carl Cole and Sounds of Good News (SOGN) Productions are releasing a new CD project titled My Buddy, a musical tribute to the late “Maestro” Bill Doll (RAMI Lifetime Achievement Award recipient).
The CD is being released in loving memory of his clarinet, tenor sax and vocal artistry.
For nearly two decades, Carl Cole played piano in Doll’s “Jazztet” Band at numerous private and public events.
The album will first be available at the SOGN “Some Like It COLE” Spring Concert at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day, at Central Christian Church, 6595 E. Guilford Road. Later, it will be available for purchase at SwedishAmerican’s Jenny’s Gift Shop (East State and Charles Street locations).
