rotary presentation

I was invited to speak at the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary meeting on April 20th. They wanted me to do my listening session from the Jazz Symposium for the Rotarians, many of whom are very involved in the Edmonds Jazz Connection which is put on by the Daybreakers. After breakfast, I played these videos and made a few comments about them for about 45 minutes in the attempt to increase their listening pleasure. It was a success!
