Nice job! It's great to have someone like yourself capturing the thoughts and stories of these great contributors.

a wonderful interview again, thanks Marc! I looked for David Van Kriedt online, as I was interested to know about his career in Australia and found an entry on the Online Archive of California were some of his papers dated ca. 1948 are preserved. It seems that most of them are arrangements and compositions dating from the Octet period, if the date is right. So hopefully everything might have not disappeared in the australian flood...though I can't certified those are the octet (or Les Eight) parts, I thought it could interest yourself and possibly Dave Brubeck. here are the links:
