Hi Larry,

 

How are you doing these day’s.

Your comment wall show’s a last comment two years ago.

I wonder if you’re still a member of the net work and this message will reach you.

You might not remember me instantly but we used to play together and with the tenor man named Sonny ?, back in Germany seventeen years ago. I keep up nice memories working with you. Like to say hello to my partner at that time and I hope you are still amongst us.

 

Warm regards,  Jurriaan (Juicy Organism)

Hi, Larry, I'm an old friend of yours from Chicago ... we met at a ski instructor's clinic in Lake Generva, Wisconsin, and later I taught one of your kid students. Remember? This was when you had the gig at the Playboy ski area. I used to live at Carl Sandberg Terrace? Anyway, it's been about 40 years, and I was amazed to see you're still alive and and still drumming. My family and I have lived in San Francisco for many years. I was checking out some jazz options in Las Vegas, and your name popped up.
If you see this, send me a message back. I'm also on Myspace.
