First: Welcome to the Forum. You will love these fans. They are wonderful and kindly. Just like Alan. I have seen him several times and just last week at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Feb. 7. He's his usual warm, talented and kind musical genius along with the Strayhorns. He loves his audience as much as they love him. He never cheats on time and is as congenial as if you were sitting with him in your living room.
You are in for a HUGE TREAT!!! Alan is not a fake and doesn't need a bunch of rock people in his group. He's just himself and it's beautiful.
