Thanks. A nice addition to their recordings.

I was at this concert on a Sunday afternoon. So great to see and hear these masterful gentlemen of jazz. I learned though that it's not always good to be in the front row if the stage is five feet high, for the sake of one's neck.

Missing title is "Lester leaps in"

Thank you very much.

(Arthur's 'Light Blue' was one of the first Jazz records I ever bought and is still one of my favourites; and if you don't mind, here is an address if anyone wishes to contribute funds to Arthur's wife, Queen Bey.)
