And finally, last night I went to see my friend Sarasota Slim at Darwin's. The article in Creative Loafing was right; as promised, he delivered a really enjoyable show as usual. The special bonus treat this time was that his Hammond B3 player couldn't make it, so Slim brought a phenomenal 16-year-old guitarist named Rick Lollar from Tallahassee. This kid knocked my socks off! His playing was perfect in every way - perfect tone, dynamics, phrasing, articulation and taste, with amazing speed when sparingly and artfully used.

Best wishes, I hope to see you all again soon.
