    Any of you guys dig (or not dig) Leroy Jones? I was introduced to his playing through the Harry Connick, Jr. Xmas CD, and he's playing some nice stuff, IMO. I haven't heard much reference to him before, so I thought I'd bring it up.

    He's a great player and stylist! His ideas are great as well.... He's definitely one of the biggest underrated players of today!

    I met him while doing a gig in Helsinki in Finland and he came and sat in with us. I was already a fan of his but only had one of his CD's. When I told him this he took my address and sent me all his other ones through the post! What a nice guy. He has a unique production and sound and everything he plays is pure Jazz tradition. He contacted me the last time H. Connick was in Glasgow but I had a gig and didn't have time to meet up with him :(
