May 2007, Rhode Island, USA.

Hi Dan,

I just wanted to let you know I enjoyed your CD very much!
I like your interpretations of Wee Wee Baby and Lonesome Woman Blues a lot.

And your band is very good! Great groove, good ensemble players and soloists.

I was pleasantly surprised and look forward to hearing more from you and your fine band!

All the best, Duke Robillard
