    Just got an e-mail from his website:

    "Don't miss Wynton's performance on Late Night with David Letterman featuring music from his latest release He and She."


    Looks like I'll be staying up late tonight...

    Did anybody else stay up late enough to watch it? I surely did and it was phenomenal!

    I watched too. It was unremarkable.

    I thought it was good as well. My only "gripe" about it is that it seemed kinda like an "after thought". I mean it was RIGHT at the end of the show. Not that Robin Williams isn't an awesome guy, but if they were the only 2 guests a little more equal time would've been a good thing. Ya know?!

    Letterman's guests are almost always reserved for the end of the show, generally regardless of stature.

    It was great. Letterman finished it off in style with a joke to the sax player which was well received...lol.
    That's a great group of musicians.

    Wynton didn't even play 20% of all the notes that he could have. :evil:
    And since when is the sax player allowed to play higher notes!
