Hi Claude
I discovered your site thru Dr. Waine and boy what a treat!!! Man its awesome sitting here in cold cold Europe and listening to dem tunes iah! Only pity is I can't always tell who I am listening to which would be great. thanks for the note on Cassandra Wilson's win. I have three of her CDs so I am surprised i did not know of her latest but I am already trusting I can get it easily on this side of the Atlantic. Keep it coming..all the best.
