Today is a recovery day at my place in the Georgia countryside. My pepperadams.com webmaster Dan Olson is flying in from Minneapolis. Tomorrow we're having a party in Tony's honor, and I've invited a brilliant quartet, led by pianist Kevin Bales, to perform for us. I doubt they'll play any Pepper tunes from Kevin's CD I produced; probably standards, but that's just fine. With Kevin is Mace Hibbard on alto sax, Neal Starkey on bass, and Justin Varnes on drums. Tony will likely sit in.
