    Thanks Ed,

    I just caught RC a few weeks ago at Catalina's here in LA - great show...particularly interesting as it was a piano/bass/drums/percussion quartet...some super swinging stuff, but also some atmospheric/free arangements; great playing by all - as was expected.

    I particularly liked their arrangement of "My Funny Valentine," a favourite standard of mine viewed from a new angle.

    Highly recommended if you get the chance.

    Who else was in that group, Andy?
    Thanks Ed. I guess the interviewer asked Ron to give him
    "recommended listenings."

    Great magazine - thanks ED!!

    I read through it and was very interested to see all their albums of the year - I shall look out for those!

    I thought Ron Carter made an interesting point about Jazz education - no Jazz on Radio/TV and a lot of the venues he knew are gone - so people now, can't learn the way he did and he sees it that a good college programme can replace that and propogate the music! :)

    The usual band members are Stephen Scott, piano; Payton Crossley, drums; Steven Kroon, percussion and weird assorted objects (they all sound great)
