A real treat, Marc -- Hank O'Neal is one of my heroes and one of the music's quiet saviors. I remember in the early Seventies buying every Chiaroscuro issue as it came out, and he also produced some extraordinary concerts at The New School: a solo Hines explosion, a Condon-Krupa-Wellstood-Davern joy festival, a Braff-Barnes earth-mover, and a solo piano night with Dill Jones, Teddy Wilson, Eubie Blake, and Claude Hopkins. Hank won't remember me, but one of my small jazz sorrows is that we never got to work on those Squirrel Ashcraft tapes he and I spoke about one afternoon some years back. May he prosper!
