  1. Hello Jaime
    We have not met – my name is Chris Helme from the UK – I have emailed Howard Taylor in the past. I nearly slipped up with your name…. I have a weekly two-hour brass band radio show here in the UK – It plays in the UK and various places overseas including Australia. When I stay slipped up – I am featuring your solo Glasshouse Whispers on my show this Sunday – which is wonderful and new to this show. Not knowing you I did wonder whether the CD sleeve had spelt your Christian name wrong as I thought it perhaps should have been spelt, Jamie. Whoops! am I glad that I checked, be assured it is correct on my playlist…
    A terrific performance.
