Hi Jim & List Mates

Thanks for your comments on the jazz aficianados. Of course, after I
sent the post I realize I had made a huge error in not listing the
Chicago musicians who along with those at Condon's and the Metropole are
Real Jazz players. That, of course, includes you, Charlie Hooks, Don
Ingle, Kim Cusack and a host of others in other areas, like Tommy Loy,
Pat Cooke and Charlie Hull.

For those of you who play REAL JAZZ, and you know who you are, please
forgive me if I left you out. It is just a combination of old age and
some ignorance about the total jazz scene. Both are faults, to which I
readily admit. (don't be correcting my English, Hooks ;-))

PS. If you don't have records with Jim Beebe et al., above, buy some.
