.......Historical pic of my friends.....Rest in eternal peace Neville !!!

Great pic, Martin! It must have been a pleasure to be mentored by a human being of that calibre. I do remember that arrangement of Barcarolle a la Earl Bostic - great Jouvay morning bomb. Be well!


Mr. Albino...I remember being taught about 100 years ago, if at first u don't succeed, try and try again. |Three cheers!!! Nice pic.

Nice Pic Albino..
