Very nice selection . . . Thank you. I've always been a fan of akLaff, particularly in his work with Threadgill.

great stuff! i guess i've never heard of Myers' organ playing, as her piano work here it is as always beautiful!
Mew, thanks much!

Would someone please post a zippy share or gamefront mirror? I really don't want to have to pay for this 1f stuff.
