The smoking saxophonist Tomoka Nomura, who went to City Honors and UB and played in a number of Buffalo jazz bands -- including one with Buzz -- now lives in California with her husband, trumpet ace Jeff Jarvis.
She was playing a gig last night for the Hawn Foundation and Goldie Hawn was there.
"I was pretty excited," says Tomoka, pictured above. "The event was for her foundation and I end up getting an autographed copy of her book. She was elegant and seems very nice. She was very petite and had a beautiful figure. I saw her close but she can easily pass for early 50s. Her son Oliver and Kurt Russell was there, too."
Wow, this is a far cry from back when Tomoka and Buzz and our band mates played 57 weekends straight at the Holiday Inn on Niagara Falls Boulevard! Buzz cheers Tomoka's supremacy in the jazz world.
Hawn cheered it, too.
Tomoka says: "Goldie Hawn gave me a hug and told me I could blow!"
