Thanks for those calendar items. Some good stuff coming our way.

Did you get to see Rahman Asadollahi w. Kronos two nights ago? Something extraordinary. I wrote about it in my blog though I don't have any mp3s of the music since I don't believe it's been recorded yet.

Now if we can only get Marcel Khalife here this coming yr!
