Oslo Jazz Festival 1999

By now the festival was an institution, able to handle most all of its own affairs and lasted an entire week with at least 75 concerts. There was less need for assistance from New York City but still some was required, particularly with artists like Clark Terry who needed tender love and care. He had health issues and could barely see. It worked out just fine but as we sat at in the car at the airport he had no trouble seeing a particularly attractive lady about fifty feet away. He just wasn’t able to chase after her.
