The problem is that if someone goes to see/hear Woody because it is him
and then thinks "If that's dixieland I don't like it". They wont
seek out any other bands. And that hurts OKOM.

If Woody plays high energy good jazz then he might encourage
more people to search out more OKOM.

I'm not commenting on whether Woody does or does not play well.
I've not heard him.
