Tom Wiggins won't be the only one at the the Fats Waller Tribute.  I 
bought my ticket some time ago.  Wouldn't miss it.  In 1993, also at the 
SF Jazz Festival, I was at a similar Fats tribute in the same hall.  It 
was fantastic, and included many of the same players plus the late Doc 
Cheatham.  I recall they often featured dual pianos, and for a few tunes 
Dick Hyman fired up the grand organ of the Davies Hall.  I think Jay 
McShann was part of it as well.  He must be really up in years by now.  
Bet he's around 90 or close to it. 

When I bought my ticket they told me at 6 PM there will be a pre-concert 
talk given (presumably about Fats Waller).
