    Hi, Bill. Just thought I’d check your upcoming sked right now. Disappointed that there are so few U.S. dates so far. This is also a long-overdue note to tell you that you and your band utterly kicked ass at my hometown festival last Labor Day. Although my life as a TV and radio sportscaster took me to New York many years ago from Detroit I still return for the jazz festival each year. I had a sports program on WJZZ in Detroit for seven years which is how I became familiar with your artistry in the first place. You guys were tremendous and I thought that you personally had a great stage personality. Continued good luck! I’ll try to get to the show in Scranton or the one in Big Indian — uh, just as soon as I Google it to find out where the hell Big Indian, New York is.

    Dear Bill,

    I like your warm sound on the Soprano sax and would like to ask you what a kind of mouthpiece you are playing and wether such a mouthpiece is still available on the market.

    Thanks a lot for your effort and your reply.

    Kind regards
    Heinz
