Listmates, some of you may remember the review of the SF Diana Krall concert
which I believe Tom Wiggins posted here a few days ago.

I sent it to Vince Bartels.  Vince is the very fine drummer with the Fulton
Street Jazz Band & current President of the Sacramento Traditional Jazz

I knew Vince had tickets to see Ms. Krall in LA at the Greek Theater.

He did see her.  His comments below:

He said to me in person that Diana was AWESOME!
Sounds as if the heckling from the audience was set up & could have even
been from her new ol' man.

Also sounds as if the critic had his head up his, well, YKW...

As Bill Allred once said, "I've been around the world & never seen a statue
of a critic."
