     I almost forgot about this myself, so perhaps ATJS will not be 
offended if i copy the announcement of tomorrow's concert from their 
webpage at http://www.atjs.org/heads/25.htm

"May 4th Concert:
A Tribute to Tommy Loy

by Malcolm Rodman

The Society's May 4th concert at Donn's Depot will be an all-star 
event, with the band fronted by two outstanding musicians: Reedman 
Bob Krenkel, from Plano, TX, who alternates on clarinet, soprano sax 
and the rarely heard bass sax and Cornetist Chet Jaeger, founder and 
leader of Southern California's Night Blooming Jazzmen. Other 
all-star bandsmen will be Max Lyon, trombone; Bob Alexius, string 
bass; Morris Nelms, piano, and Budge Mabry, drums.

The concert will be dedicated to the late Tommy Loy, who had been 
scheduled to return to play this concert when he died tragically of 
cancer last year. Trumpeter Tommy Loy traveled to Austin yearly since 
2000 to play for ATJS audiences. He will be remembered for his 
energetic playing and singing as well as his wry wit.

Our concert will be a joyous celebration of his life by musicians who 
played with him and audiences who admired his style."
