The DJML mail was copied to Don Jones, publisher of the American Rag. They can
publish it or not as they see fit.

Probably not any more. I hear tell that is was, however, very much the case, a
decade or so ago.

PS. Some of my musical buddies who were at Atlanta Jazz Party (performers and
audience) reported that it was GREAT. I know had I been there, I would have adored
Christopher and Wilbur, with Metz Jr, Flanagan and Shane, as well as Pizzarelli and
Alden. They are musical GIANTS, all, and play some of the best OKOM around these
days. They are what jazz is all about.
