Dear Steve,
Thank you for (once again) keeping us aliens up-to-date with jazz in the New
York Times.
I was even anticipating the Hampton funeral report and had already promised to
send it to a mate, knowing that you would not lets us down.
The funeral report rises several questions.
Why a New Orleans type funeral?
Why Mr Marsalis?
Did Hamp ever play at the New York Cotton Club?
The Apollo,  yes. 
Kind regards,
