Nope.  One guy.  He showed up here in Chicago some 20 years ago along 
with Yank Lawson and some guys from The World's Greatest and sat in 
with Beebe and me at "Razzles" down on Lakeshore Drive.  I couldn't 
believe I was playing alongside a legend, but he played better at age 
75 than he had at 20 or so on that record!   AL KLINK is his name, 
and he could still do those leaps down to low Bb.  Blew me away!
