    Dear Konrad, I was up in Aberdeenshire (Huntly) last week at my daughters and heard your recording
    of ‘Remembrance’ on a programme called Jazz Nights and really liked it, and how you play it… The only
    one Ive heard (and met twice) who comes close to your sound is Richard Ingham (I wonder if you have heard of him,
    he is in Scotland somewhere on the east coast maybe)
    I wish the people on the radio would spell out your (Polish) last name, took me a long time to find you!
