Russ and DJML--
     There's another player named Westy (actual 
first name is Lee) Westenhofer (was that who Russ 
was thinking of?), and he's not only a great 
showman, he's one of the best jazz soloists west 
of Dave Gannett.  He also has his own CD out, 
which i bought at Sacramento.
     With the Reynolds Brothers in Sacramento, he 
and the John Reynolds did the funniest bit i've 
ever seen utilizing the famous bilabial fricative 
(he called it "bilabial fricatation").  It's your 
basic 'fart' sound, but they had the audience 
rolling in the aisles with laughter.
