Dear Katie,
Thank you.
For those DJMLers have been following Katie's travel posts don't  
<delete> any of the above without a proper look.
Long clips of magnificent performances all round (including the band).
May the show have an extremely long, and successful run, in the US.  
And Canada?
It would  certainly 'do well' in Australia.
Very kind regards,
Bill (who immediately went to the shelf and dug out the Josephine  
Baker records).
PS: Give our best wishes to David Boeddinghaus, who stopped with us  
during a Swedish Jazz Kings visit to Sydney, Oz, some years back.
