If you had seen the whole concert you would have been amazed at the sheer
technique and feeling of the musicians. Herlin Riley has got to be the
finest drummer of his generation. His feature was out of this world. His
cymbal technique was a lesson to one and all. The way he built up his solo
was an object lesson to anyone with pretensions to playing the drums.

It was nice to see Joe Temperley again (one of our exports to the USA)
playing baritone. Wes Anderson's alto was, as always, superb. I did not see
any bebop and beyond but just a superb concert. Why do we have to use
