The music is not enough. It never has been."
  It is true today, but when I encountered the Condon records
  back in the  50's and never stopped listening; I had a impression
  that his was one case where music was enough. It was a lot of 
  the other type outfits that couldn't make it on music alone. Just my
  .02 .  And I thought the reason he was getting he attention he got was that for his outfit it was, "just the music." BTW, I listened
  to "Barbone ST." on radio365 "Gumbo" show, and the trombonist
  according to Steve was Glenn Dodson. Wow, a great player and
  fun to hear.
