  1. Amongst the real great saxophonists. Let’s face it , you’ve got to be great to join the ranks of Charlie Parker etc. !

  2. I’m now watching Slovenia v England, sound down, and listening to Free Jazz (O C) at the same time! Good, but it doesn’t make up for the fact that, due to a family emergency, I couldn’t get to the Rose Bowl for the ODI !!
