Here's the scoop on the song you mentioned here Arturo...got it from John's wife and manager Susan...hope it helps...Russ Davis XM/VOA

"Hi Russ:
Official answer: The tune is actually called SHOE DOG (the name of a book John was reading at the time of writing the tune) and the Trio plays it all the time in their repetoire. It will not appear on a commercial release until maybe 2008. The Trio has enough new original material to release a double cd!

Best,
Susan"
