"My wife and I witnessed your presentation at the Brooklyn Theatre this afternoon. The best performance we've seen in years. We hope to see a lot of you in the future!!(Why are all trombone players wicked on stage?) (well done)"
"The Classic Jazz Masters (ex-Radium Beer Hall) performed a concert with a pianist and a singer." It was a beautiful afternoon, and they were all in great shape. Have you heard Hannah Foster sing? She's a fantastic singer. David Cousins, the pianist, was also excellent. The arrangements were created by guitarist Sasha Sonnbichler."
