Some recent pics of her however led me to think that she was ballooning up pretty dangerously! If this is a recent performance you posted, I'm glad to see she's gotten back into shape. (I'm just concerned about her health!)

So, I assume that Tine would love to shake hands with me... for the Clifford Brown connection.

I shook hands with Elvin Jones once...

it was like putting your hand in a mechanical shovel. My hand ached for quite a while afterwards....

When we were about 14, my friend and I rode the bus from our comfortable suburb down into "the ghetto" to a club where he was playing with his quintet. We were shown to a table in an adjacent room where we could hear but not see and when asked, ordered a Coke. After the set, we were presented with a bill for $5 each (this was 1962) and told the waiter all we had was a little more than bus fare home. The manager came over and, I think, astonished at the two young white boys, comped us.
