Ed you picked up exactly on my vibe on DK.  She(DK) is a player,
appreciates and understands the music and does have photo appeal.  She is
very shy though.
Her reference for Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra help me know she could
represent    I am of the opinion that if some of these movie types were
asked technical questions in interviews they might not be able to represent
like a DK, Quincy or Billy Taylor, Branford, Harry, Charlap, Schaap,Wynton
or Benson..  This is a mute question any way becuase there will NEVER be a
national spokesperson and we are so fragmented if we could have such we
could never agree.  I guess the point of this is to get us to THINK.  ALOHA
