Once again thanks for another brilliant night of great music. It's nice to see the same faces are still with you, particularly the younger musicians. I must admit my leaning towards Hendrix and other guitar heroes. But I cut my teeth on Kenton - Basie - Artie Shaw etc and these are people who you don't forget. Ever.
Good music is, fortunately, still with us, thanks mainly to people, like yourselves, who keep the flag flying, and for that I'm grateful.

Your Copacabana was a great opener, but I feel that the Neil Diamond shirt should have been gashed to the waist - with a medallion. once again, every number was a winner.

I thought the Swing Bands version of 'Birdland', to pick just one, was superb, I closed my eyes and saw Jacko Pastorios up there with them on bass.

Thank you all.
