Hey Peter Sokolowsky at WFCR,

Thanks for the nice words on the camera work in Ralph Gleason's jazz TV 
shows. Although most of the simplicity to the camera work was due to 
equipment limitations of the time (Jazz Casual had only one camera when 
it began!)

I haven't seen any of Legends Of Jazz, yet, but most modern TV 
production will tend towards more fancy camera work which doesn't lend 
itself to covering jazz well, in my opinion.

Anyway, thanks for the comment.
