Dear Bob,

We're sorry to hear about your folding your operation.  You played some
great jazz classics, as well as some fine classics in the making.  We
appreciate all the support you've given Josh's and Larry's music, as we've
often told you.

We're happy  to hear that you're free of the cancer; that's a relief.
Sounds as if this is a time for new ventures in your life.  Love it that
you're out there on your touring bike, hopefully, on some nice bike trails.
We knows!  One of these days, you may travel west, but not on Route 66, and
head for Northern California and the lovely Napa Valley wine country, where
we live.  We'd love to see you

Larry got a call a few weeks ago from Roberta Gambarini's manager who asked
if he would like to work with them on a tour in some towns in Germany, plus
three days in Milan, Italy and one-night at a festival in Zagreb.  Roberta
is a big fan of Jon Hendrick's, and as you know, Larry was Jon's accompanist
for many years.  He also worked with other great vocalese masters, such as
Mel Torme, Anita O'Day, Bobby McFerrin, etc..  Larry knew her manager and
record producer, Larry Clothier, from the old days and told him he'd love to
work with her.  He loves Roberta's singing, which features a great
combination of lovely voice in the Ella tradition, as well as the great
scatting of Ella, Jon and a few of the other great vocalists.  Larry leaves
March 14, for Zurich and returns March 25.  He's excited, to say the least.

We wish you many wonderful new chapters in your life.  Keep in touch.

Highest regards to you from Larry and Sanna.
