Thank you, man. I haven't seen it yet. Do they refer to me as "the vibraphonic equivalent
of the ideological marriage between FDR and Abraham Lincoln" ? and, ... "as good for the nation as any vibes player who has emerged since Dwight D. Eisenhower" ?

NOTHING ELSE WILL DO! All critics be advised ...

(sorry - watching way too much political news)

they said your playing will be change to the instrument. a change long over due.

you are re defining the vibraphone for all humanity and for all around the world.

also the members of al qaeda would like to sit down and talk with you.

FYI, Joe's myspace page was updated a few days ago (thanks Nadja!), with new full tracks to listen to from this album (1. Like Joe - 2. Ruminations - 5. No moe - 6. Laura)

All of them are great! My fav. so far, a funky/groovy/bop version of "No Moe"! I love it! This afternoon, Florian listened to it. A miracle: he stayed, headphone on his little ears, nearly for the 7 mn it lasts! (So don't worry Joe, the "test" is positive: this tune is now "Flo Approved"!... Though I'm not really sure it's an essential point in your career! :o)

December 4, 5 an 6! You luck New Yorkers! :o)
