    Hi all,

    A friend of mine bought Wynton's book, "Letters from the road". He noticed that all the letters are addressed to a guy named Anthony. Does anyone know who this it?

    Cheers
    Eric S.

    Also, would this book be an interesting read? Any reviews would be nice.

    The book is based upon ten replies from Wynton to a fictional youngster named Anthony. Anthony doesn't exist, and if you have read this book, you will probably say that the world would be better if the book didn't exist either. It is really bad -- Wynton should stick to playing his horn!

    I just finished reading that book for the first time. I think that I am going to have to read it 10 times over. There is so much information on each page. It was a fast read for me. I highly recommend this book to any young aspiring jazz musician, especially if you are living in a musically/culturally diverse area. I found the book to be extremely colorful and it really provides alot of insight into what we do and why we choose to do it.
