Dr. Ulyses s. Crockett, Jr.

Congratulations to all musicians for fine performances on a thoughtful sselection of songs by leader-pianinst Ismhael Reed. The woodwind work of Master composser-musician Roger Glenn is particularly appropriate for the sound Reed wished to portray. The performances of all the muscians gives the songs a unique flavor which will be memorable for all listeners. Thaks to all for the joy shared in these challenging times.
