I was driving back from Houston and thinking of Conte tonight, a solo quoting Roy Eldridge's "Little Jazz." Pete said he could play all Roy's solos.

Buddy, well, speaks for himself. Never treated fairly by the critics.

Any chance of some more photographs?


Gee, the only one missing from this photo is David Allyn which would have made a triumvirate of Italian-Americans in the Raeburn band.
