Dear Jim--
I did the Anne Davison video and the website where it can be purchased is
The video costs only $20 and it was a labor of love as you will see. I
assume you need a PAL version rather than an NTSC. I can get PAL and SECAM
versions done, but it costs extra (why can't there be only ONE video
system??) and I will check that out today and let you know what the extra
cost is. I will just pass it on to you.

I'm happy this video has brought so much enjoyment to jazz fans everywhere.

She certainly was a classy lady and -as you say - she kept William alive for
least an extra ten years.

Where does one get the video (in Brit format) from?
