On Jan. 26 1999 Jon T-Bone Taylor kindly sent us the following informative e-mail:
Dear Christer and Vanja,
And on Dec. 30 1999 we received more news from Jon T-Bone Taylor:
Good to see Jim Mullen amoung the artists on your website. I saw Jim
play last week with Mose Allison, both of them — and the rhythm team of
Roy Babbington and Mark Taylor — were in excellent form. We spoke after
the gig, and he said that Terry Callier is playing at London’s Jazz Café
and recording another album which will feature Jim; he was re-united
with Dick Morrisey, who is wheelchair-bound due to a spine tumour, for a
gig in Kent and that Dick plays just a s good as he ever did; and also
that he is accompanying Jimmy Smith on his Jazz Café residency.
