Hey, guys -- Thanx for the tip on the video of the commercial.   That's the 
whole segment -- it's only about eight bars or so with the intro and then 
fades into the commercial voice-over.   My so-called two-clarinet part is 
the intro, just before Maxine comes in.   Cal, there is no long trumpet note 
in the commercial -- the long note is the alto sax softly descending behind 
her with the greatest of respect.   That music is beautiful, as was all of 
Maxine's -- right to the end.   Thank God we had several savored 
opportunities to play with her during her last years.  I gotta get that 
record.   I just gotta.
