I just want to thank any and everyone, who is willing to help me raise enough $ to put together my picks of my recordings in the last fifty years...up to now as well, I still play when I can find the right musicians to play with, and I do, they are right here for me, and when I can steal them away for some fun with the Duke Dewey Quartet, or Duke's Powerwagon, I do, and we have fun and make great music together. So PLEASE! THANK YOU-PEOPLE NOW!
