    “Thanks Seb, so far so good. We all got here last night and Helen, Mark Wheeler and I managed to sneak in a trip to the Vanguard to see Tom Harrell's chamber ensemble, amazing. Lots of press here for Kenny too, front pages and features/interviews in all the jazz magazines and leaflets.

    Anyway, off to John Hollenbeck's rehearsal soon and then first night tonight with Ingrid Jenson at the Standard – highlight for me being to play Kenny's 4 trumpet arrangement of “How Deep..” with Ingrid, Kenny and Dave Douglas! I'll keep you posted!”
