	Since I saw that there was some "trivia" on the list, and then this 
mention of Steve Turre's b-day. I will mention that Steve told me once 
when I was playing with him that he and drummer Victor Lewis not only 
share the same birthday, but were born in the SAME hospital in the SF 
Bay area.... Same day, same hospital, same town, same career, same 
successes. Although I never confirmed this "independently."
	It is sort of an interesting factoid based on the fact that their 
careers have also run similar courses (playing with Woody Shaw, and 
finally residing in NY metro), and they have even recorded together on 
one of Turre's Verve records (I think). AND he always said his name 
Tur-REY, (with only a slight accent on the second syllable) around me.
	My 2 cents,
	Mark Griffith
