I recall exchanging a letter or two with Jim in 1997, when the "Cradle" bizniss first came up. His exact words with the cassette were, "Have a listen to this - do you think it could be Bix on a bad day?" My immediate response was "No way! Fegeddaboutit!" You know the rest! But it's been years since we've communicated. Hi Jim!!
Thanks, Albert, for passing on the plug. I had to miss doing this last year - for the first time - due to illness, and so intend to be back with a vengeance.
Hey, out-of-towners - the Marriott is ONE BLOCK from L. A. International! You could fly in, WALK OVER and fly out.
