Subject: Will always remember listening to Dick

I first saw Dick play with David Bromberg. They were touring Europe, and I saw them play a circus tent in Florence, Italy in December of '79 or January of '80. I remember it being a real cold evening. He was there with Dave, George Kindler, and a female bass player, maybe Bromberg's wife, I don't remember for sure.

It was a special night. Most of the tunes played were instrumentals--probably because of the language barrier--and Dick, George, and Dave were really on that night. Dick played a couple of songs solo that night--his playing was truly inspirational.

From that point on, every time I'd see Bromberg, I would be hoping that Dick was there--he was about half the time, and the shows that featured him were always special.

I saw him last year with the Big Band in Albany at the Egg and he was, as always, a joy to listen to.

I'm glad I had a chance to be a part of his audience from time to time.
