  1. Great (very young then) Geof Keezer at the piano in the starting tune. Great trumpet solo.

  2. That, or start learning about jazz by listening closely to everyone from the 30s up to hard bop (this, Blakey style, Horace Silver et al) up to nowadays.

  3. Geoff was 18 or 19 ys old.

  4. I totally agree with you Thomas…why should anyone pay for something that will ultimately cost them their lives?
    does not make any sense…still better times are coming tom…take care man
