Cogratulations on recent marriage--best thing I have ever done---47 years ago! Was looking through some Black Saint records (yes records) and found #BSR 0081 View from Within---Muhal Richard Abrams Octet. One tune: Down at Peppers was outstanding
and Positrain was a close second. The musicians were (1985): Abrams (p), Stanton Davis (t), John Purcell (s), Ehrlich (s) Rick Rosie (b), Warren Smith (vibes), Thurman Barker (d), Ray Mantila (perc). The MUSIC is great. Listen??? Thanks again and always for your musical efforts in this city and beyond.

hi don. I'm just wondering if I've been selected to play at the jazz festival, either with my proposal, or some other configuration. Please let me know asap. congrats on the new CD. I'd come to the release but alas i'm playing again with the latin band. ( long hours, poor dough). I've my own CD to be released soon, but its solo. So please get back to me as soon as you can regards festival, either email or 434-4708, or 904-5941. Note, your phone number on your web page doesn't work. Glen

Hey buddy, it was a pleasure meeting you on the bus and train rides from Edmonton. I hope you had a good time at your brother's wedding. I went for more X-rays when I got to Montreal, but there are no fractures. I'm starting physiotherapy next Monday. Next time I'm in Edmonton I'll drop by and say hello and if you ever come to Montreal, feel free to do the same. Until next time, take care.

Tore Bern apart today, hit every CD store looking for your smash hit album. Most places just looked at me with this really blank expression (but I'm sure the fact that the population mostly speaks German here has nothing to do with that) and acted like they had no clue what I was talking about, but I'm sure it's just that following the crayed wave of huge fans, the near riots, and the sellout frenzy of your album they must be afraid to admit that they stock your disc. Well, better luck in the next city I guess. TTFN!
