Certainly not Tanglewood; that campus place busts at the seams with 20,000,  
and they rarely get that many (only when James Taylor appears. Of course, he's 
a  carryover from Music Inn and the nearby, long-gone Berkshire Music Barn, 
where  MJQ and other Jazz greats also played. But I don't think they ever held 
that  kind of crowd, either. A forthcoming documentary film on Music Inn may 
shed some  light on that)..

I recall  talking to Milt
Jackson who said the MJQ on the same bill with Ella played  to 70,000
at Tanglewood, I think it was.
