Totally agree Bill...........
P.S. just remember folks to shut off the computer and go out and support LIVE jazz if you have the opportunity in your own town or nearby city. If you don't you may LOOSE that opportunity once and for all. It's MUCH different to actually experience this ensemble music in a real room with real acoustics... and yes real musicians in front of you performing it :}
