Makes it all worth while!

(Daryl Sherman)
I'll be in England next week until Jan 22. Mostly for friend's birthday event but have a few gigs including Swansea and also this:
Digby Fairweather has been dedicating himself to launching this fairly new Jazz Centre in Southend. He visited NYC a few months ago and when I told him I'd be over in January...voila! He fixed up a concert on Friday evening and then next day as you'll see. I look forward to seeing the sea as well as lovely folks who live there.
All best to you, Lance, dearest and many thanks for your kind, caring support.
