    Hi Folks,

    Black Dyke gave yesterday evening in Lucerne (Switzerland) a concert. The concert was fantastic.

    Especially the soloists were outstanding (my favourite soloist was John Doyle with "Children of Sanchez" a lovely tone on the flugel and the last note....outstanding...).

    Unfortunately Peter Roberts was not on the soprano cornet. I don't know the bloke who played soprano.

    Here my question. Does anybody who played soprano with Black Dyke on this trip to Switzerland?

    One of the best audiences i have ever played.
    I love the swiss for their fantastic rounds of applause.
    Truly brilliant.

    Hi John,

    thank you for your reply.

    It seems every time when I hear you playing you are getting better and better.......and very sporty.......

    What was the last note you played in your solo? Top D?
    Is this arrangement of Children of Sanchez available on CD? (preffered played by you).

    Hey Alex.
    I miss the crack AK. You are a legend.
    When are you back and when can we go out and live that dream.

    Claudio. Thanks for the comments.
    It was a top 'E' and it was a good day. Thats all i can say. Does not always sound like that.
    Really enjoyed the concert.
