Nice Set, Darkblack. And you may be the first GUY I ever said that to!

I had the pleasure of seeing Dizzy play an outdoor concert in West Bumf__k, NH, I think it was the mid-70s. The little show was sold out, but a dozen of us were left outside the gate... so the promoter put a dozen folding chairs up on the stage, and there we sat. Ten feet from Diz and some new kid he had in tow... Winton Somebody-or-Other.

It was cool.

Thank you, TCR. Sunday Overnight attempts to catch a feeling - not always successfully, but making the effort is essential.

Ah, Wynton something-or-other...I remember a fellow by that approximate description attempting to sit in at a Miles Davis show that I attended in the 80's uninvited, with a certain degree of publicly negative response to this intrusion being exhibited by the star performer.

The hubris of youth, I suppose.
