    Dear Pat et al,

    For what it's worth I stumbled across the following ancient
    article in the Guardian. (Google: olaf palme jazz butcher it's the
    11 hit)

    http://arts.guardian.co.uk/fridayreview/story/
    0,12102,1353957,00.html

    Enjoy...

    I'm hoping by adding to your press cuttings, you'll play Olaf
    Palme on the 16th - any chance ???

    what is your email address? i want to send you a copy of "party time" i played live last night. i do a one man band type thing at a bar in LA and play all your tunes - do sue me - come to LA and i'll point you to where all the jazz butcher fans hang out - they love you guys - and the chicks are hot - you've been helping me get laid for about a year now! i call myself the smooth jazz butcher (just kidding)
