    Hey JimK,

    Let us know how that cd is, sounds pretty damn good.

    I used to go check out this jazz fusion trio in Boston and one month their regular drummer went on tour and Abe Jr., who was at Berklee at the time, subbed for him. It was complete rip-your-head-off fusion like I've never seen.

    My friend Todd was studying at Berklee. He said this guy showed up for a particular class for the first day and then he never saw him again until the day of the final. Todd asked him,"Excuse me, I noticed you haven't been in class all semester, why are you bothering to show up for the last day?"

    The guy said,"Well I got a deal with Berklee. I've been on tour with Seal."

    The dude turned out to be Abe Jr.
