Alvino Rey played guitar on a set with us (Fulton Street Jazz Band) here at the Sacramento Jubilee many years ago. After the set as we were packing up I asked him where he was going next.

He said, "Well, man, as soon as this festival is over I'm off to Spain."

"Off to Spain, man, what happens over there?"

He said, "I do it every summer. I spend a month studying with Andres Segovia."

How about that, sports fans?
