back on the internet, I found LT Strikes Again and the Jordan at Amazon. Beautiful writing, whether yours or LT's. I think LT would find your solo on one more chance very, very nice! Lost your address; hope this finds you. PJ
PS: PJ Perry, a super alto living in Edmonton, AB, loves Lucky. I'm sure he will flip over Strikes Again!

Superb! Thank you for letting us to virtually hang along your Silk Road tour. I enjoyed it SO much! What a talent to be able to use the best of technology to show the inner feelings of a person while the memories are fresh. The quartet is very lucky to have you on board, both as a talented musician, but most of all such a talented know-it-all person. Thank you for agreeing to take on this tour, and I fully believe that impressions that people received from meeting and listening to you will last as long as your impressions of all the countries you visited and people you have met. Hope to see you again!
