Jazz Legacy

Hi Lance,
I've just spent about 2 hours looking through your photos. Thank you for giving me the chance to wrap myself up in the atmosphere of your lifelong hunt for music and imagary; those photos leave quite a legacy for you. Decades of one off nights and an ever changing scene but still a continuous flow of jazz. My experience of talented jazz musicians often shows their offstage flaws but with a pursuit for purity in music that compensates for a lack of it in life.
Hope you continue to record many a great gig in the future.
Mark
