Hello  everyone,
A couple of weeks, I  was a guest along with 'violinist' David Greenberg in 
a concert with  The Chris Norman Ensemble in Jacksonville, Florida. Chris 
and I played  together for many years in the trio Helicon with Robin Bullock 
and last  weekend just celebrated our 25th Annual reunion Winter Solstice 
Concerts  for about 1700 people in Baltimore. Anyway, apparently a set from 
this  concert in Florida was broadcast on "Performance Today" yesterday (I 
missed it).  But I understand that it is archived on the Performance Today 
website  and supposedly they will run parts of the concert over the next couple 
of days on many NPR stations. I've not heard the  performance but Chris and 
David are amazing players as are the  rest of the ensemble. They do some 
very precise and complex arranging. I had  only a few weeks practice to learn 
20 or so tunes, transitions, chord  progressions etc so I was hanging in 
there the best that I could but it was  still a lot of fun. Maybe you can catch 
the show on your local NPR station  over the next few days or visit the  
Here is the message  that Performance Today sent to me a day late!:
