    Thanks for the memories! I was the young gal in her twenties at the desk, while workng for Sam Herman few years back in the 60’s. I doubt you’d remember me, but I had the best job in the world, listening to you and others (Q, Lalo S., etc.) while composing and arranging, as the copyists did their work in between those times. I remember you well, as you were not only cool but the ultimate gentleman.

    How could have forgotten Toots!? It’s reading about him that all my memories came flouding back. Such sweet, sweet ones too…the knowing of great musicians, booking the recording sessions, going to them and their concerts, hearing great music, etc.
