Thanks Jeanne:

Write me closer to your NYC trip and I'll tell you who is playing  
where. Some excellent OKOM is regularly played there. Plus you should  
go see Les Paul who is still thriving at 92. (Monday nights at the  
Iridium with a great trio that usually includes female Double Bassist  
Nicky Parrott who is excellent)

Please give my regards to trombonist Bobby Scann in Vegas. I still  
remember him from when he sat in with us a few years ago and also took  
a lesson from Glenn Dodson a day later.
