Cyrille Aimee was wonderful last Friday nite appearing in a small venue in Pelham NY. With just her guitarist accompanying her and being no more than 30 feet from any audience member, it was an electric and personal performance. Her vocal qualities and her ability to scat and improvise were truly mesmerizing.

What was the name of the wonderful artist you played at 9:00? Her name sounded like Serela May, but I could find no one with that name.

Jonathan, do those New York Tonight tapes still exist? Would't they be a great addition to the jonathanchannel. Who were some other guests? Sinatra ever do it? Ken
