As they approached the lounge bar, they heard the sound of a wild swinging electric organ. Wondering "who the hell was swinging that hard on the B3," they walked in and saw Tony Monaco, an "unsung hero" of the instrument. Few people knew Monaco, though he had been promoted by organ legend Jimmy Smith and had spent two years touring with jazz guitarist Pat Martino. Smith and Valentino made their way through the crowd and asked if they could join in. They proceeded to spend the rest of the night jamming together, later joined by festival greats George Benson and Roy Hargrove.

Venue: Birdland Jazz Club
