Make that 12,500 words since he got a typewriter with Elite type. I actually
go one better -- I got a phone call from Wayne two weeks ago, on his nickel,
thanking me for sending a CD I burned of some live Sons of Bix sets we did
(part of which was at Hall Brothers Emporium of Jazz when you were on the
House Band opposite of us).
Wayne actually talked for some length of time, that in itself being a first,
since he doesn't like long conversations on the phone as a rule, either.
He is one original and a good friend, even if a graduate of the Indiana
School for Curmudgeonry. He is also the best, tastiest, and most accurately
studied trad drummer I ever played with. Never too much, always just the
My wife Jean has kept a scrapbook of Wayne's epic post cards, by the way.
