So, I’m tidying up at the end of the evening and bump into Buddy Greco waiting by the stage door with a suitcase, so I ask him if he needs a hand with it.  He says thanks, then asks if I’d got any good pictures, so I showed him this one and he says, “That would make a great album cover” and gives me his email address.

So who knows….
