And playing today in Europe: Enrico Tomasso (who at age 8 played for Louis 
in his dressing-room in England), Bent Persson, Mike "Magic" Henry, Paul 
Lacey, Bruce Adams, Digby Fairweather, Andy Woon, Tom Goosen, Ken Sims, 
Roland Pilz, Renee Hagmann........and a hundred others. These guys are all 
pretty important too (and a lot less opinionated than Mr Marsalis!) but I 
still think that Bill would be best advised to study a smaller number of the 
great guys from the 20's/30's whose work has stood the test of time (and did 
anyone mention Berigan?).
