Conrad may well play the cornet, but he is best known as a trombonist.  He
used to hang around these parts.  Haven't heard from him in some time.  Hope
he's doing well.

Hello Mark,
Harriet Janis was Rudi's partner not only in writing THEY ALL PLAYED
RAGTIME, but also, I believe, in Circle records, which recorded some
very good jazz (not always "strictly from Dixie," despite Blesh's
reputation, but all OKOM).  Also, she is, I believe, the mother of the
cornetist Conrad Janis.
