I heard the Riverwalk radio show, "Live at the Landing",
<br>with the Jim Cullum Jazz Band (Don Mopsick's group)
<br>tonight on our local DC area public radio station. Hadn't
<br>heard it for a while. It was so nice to hear such nice music.
<br>Reminded me of the time I stopped in the bottom of the Hyatt
<br>across from the Alamo in San Antonio one Sat night,
<br>and Jim let me sit in with his band. (They weren't on the air
<br>live that night.) I played harmonica on one number -- can't
<br>remember what song. Jim was a bit surprised and I think
<br>maybe put out a bit when I also went into a vocal chorus.
<br>I guess I broke protocol, because I had only asked if I could
<br>sit in on harmonica. Hadn't mentioned that I also sang.
<br>Still he was gracious.
<p>This was about 6 or 7 years ago. I doubt if Don M. remembers it.
<br>But I went down there about three weekends in a row and it was
<br>magical getting to hear that great band in such a beautiful setting.
<br>That was when Christopher Evan was playing clarinet with them.
