Andy,

Noting the inclusion of a few Jimmie Lunceford once again draws praise...I always feat that band was way-underrated for its drive, clean execution, great solo work and, if you're lucky enough to see the few film clips, showmanship...thanks for presenting "The Harlem Express"...

Also, I've noted a recent increase of The Coon-Sanders' Nighthawks on your show & others....again, adding showmanship with fine musicianship...Yes, five stars for this episode!
