  1. Well I didn’t know I WANTED this music, and I didn’t WATCH this music last night…or EVER really. Very mellow, very cool. Loved the shared focus on all the players. And don’t I wish I could dance like thos cats? Amazing (and probably very good for your circulation). Thank you!

  2. Did I say WANTED…I meant WATCHED a Blues special. Writing in the morning doesn’t come easy to me (apparently). Thanks for doing your job. 🙂
