He was looking for input as it was in editing mode. There was no narrator, there was no background music. Raw footage. This was a version that he was working on and it contained many people from What the Bleep!? I knew then it would be good and do well once out on the circuit.

...called "Forecast" written by the Pianist was featured that was pleasing to the ears and soul.

All the ladies received a tribute from Mr. Holloway as he dedicated Duke Ellington's "Satin Doll" to us. It possessed a splendid connection of space and time between all the musicians.

Red's occasional smile and nod as Art and Richard exchanged soulful solos gave us a taste of the Blues, Straight Ahead, Swing, and affability.
