Dave, Bob, and DJML--
     Yes, i bin found ("Looking for Mr. Goodtuba"?).  Just got out of 
the Turk Murphy tribute-concert here in San Francisco and raced to my 
motel room (45 paces) and checked my email and telephoned Dave, so 
all's well (or as well as can reasonably be expected).
     The concert was wonderful for those who like jazz in the Turk 
Murphy style.  Leon Oakley and Jim Cullum on cornets, Tom Bartlett on 
trombone, Bill Carter on clarinet, John Gill on banjo, Clint Baker on 
drums (hey, he plays everything but bagpipes, and i'm afraid to ask 
about them), Ray Cadd on tuba, and Marty Eggers on piano.  Ray 
Skjelbred played some great intermission-piano.  Had more than 400 in 
attendance, and the dance-floor was never empty, and usually full of 
people making unusual movement of body parts in time to the music (as 
you might guess, i ain't a dancer).  A number of luminaries, like Bob 
Schulz and Charles 'Duff' Campbell--aged 90--were also there.
     Leon especially was in fine form, playing some of the hottest 
cornet in the country, but the whole band (the "Bay City Stompers") 
played with great expertise and intensity.  It was being recorded, 
and will (like last year's concert) probably show up on a CD 
     Bob, you need to alert the manager of the Lodi Beer Company to 
increase production for this Wednesday, as this dry California 
climate has engendered a powerful thirst in me.  On the way to your 
house i'll stop off and buy a couple of hogsheads of some highclass 
swill for you so i don't drink all of your beer.  You have any of 
that Avocado Beer left?
