Forrest, I can't believe we were at the same event again and didn't manage to run into each other. I even asked Robert and others if they had seen you around. I should have known Jeff Pearce was holding out on me.
Yes everyone played amazingly well, at the top of each of their games. Just an amazing series of concerts. And the after parties were fun too! It was great meeting so many wonderful people. Oh and I knew of the Russian composer Sven Grünberg decades ago, I bought a couple of his albums back in the 1980s, so I hope that counts for something.
I have to say Anton is a very nice guy, it was a great pleasure meeting him.
Biggest surprise to me was meeting Archie Paterson of Eurock whom I bought many great albums from over the years, including those Sven Grünberg LPs. And who was he with when I meet him? Another artist who's recordings I had bought from him years ago, Michel Huygen of Neuronium who just sold his house the week before and decided at the last minute to treat himself to Ambicon. He told some wonderful stories of Vangelis and Klaus Schulze from back in the day at the little party Robert Rich had in his hotel room Saturday night. More later.
