Don Ingle spoke about a great moment in Jazz at which he was lucky to have been present.  

I also had one of those moments.  

It was at either the first or 2nd Sacramento Jazz Jubilee.  I believe it was the first one in 1974.  It was outdoors at the old 49er site in Old Sacramento on a beautiful May evening.  There was an all-star band onstage.  I can't remember who was in the band except that at one point, Bobby Hackett with Dick Carey on piano played  the most beautiful duet version of "My Funny Valentine" that I have ever heard.  In fact, it was one of the most beautiful performances that I have ever heard.  And as in Don's case, I was lucky just to have been there.
