  1. After all these years one would think that I would know that Branford, not Brandon, is the one I met! It was electrifying although too short lived! I hope we get a chance to go down memory lane….

  2. CNN just interviewed Wynton and he mentioned the Congo spectacular event. He seemed genuine and although I never visited New Orleans, his mention of Louis Armstrong, Mahalia Jackson, and other greats gave me much warmth inside that the new New Orleans will be better! I wish him the best in what he is trying to do. Although it was many years ago I still remember meeting Bandon backstate at a Jazz Festival in Portland. I shall never forget that meeting and also wish Bandon the best. As a new author I would like to send them a copy of my fictional love short story novel, Fragrance (info on my blog). Where should I send it? Thanks! Princene
