  4. I appreciate you letting me know about the Amstel Quartet, David. They are getting my Sunday morning off to a beautiful, thoughtful, melodious start. Also, this is reminding met that I used to love and listen to a jazz saxophone chorus (whose name is escaping me, right now). Thanks for all of it.
