Saint Gabriel's like the Marines are always looking for a few Good Men, ( and 
a lot of Good Women) :)  so if any of you want to go on the next Red White & 
Blues Tour with us pick yourself out a name and sign up for auditions, 
Trombone players are required to play FONK from time to time and must have a pager.

Bye the way in my reply to Bill Gunter's post about 60 year old White Blues 
singers I forgot to mention one of the best in the business; Charlie 
Musselwhite is not only one of, if not the Best White Blues singers in the World he is 
definitely the Worlds finest Blues Harmonica Player and has been picked as such 
many many times by the big Playboy International Jazz Poll.  I produced an 
Album with him in 1978 that got my First Grammy Nomination, a real thrill for 
Both Charlie and Me.   "The album:  "Times gettin' tougher than Tough"  a Live 
Direct to Disc Recording.

The only thing more difficult than playing the Blues for a living is managing 
a self destructive  Real Blues Singer, now that will give you the Blues .
