Correct as usual, Smokey. But frankly, ANYthing Peter plays is DElicious.  
:) I have several CD's --with MadCat & Kane, Triple Play, etc. and had the  
privilege of getting to see him play up close and personal at SPAH and  
other more intimate settings (MadCat at a Filisko teach-in, for  example, 
responding to the rest of us asking him to just PLAY and  enthralling his table 
audience with an impromptu performance--and then  an off-the-cuff lesson --too 
cool for words);
Here's a review of the new CD by a C. Michael Bailey (ignore his referring  
to MadCat as 'Mudcat' --that's an entirely different species of whacky 
being  although the moustaches may bear a vague resemblance).<G> Check out the  
article AND the videos beneath: --which incorporate a couple of snippets of  
Brother Can you Spare a Dime:
- if those vids don't work for you, here's the YouTube version which you  
can make fullscreen:
...and just because I stumbled onto it, and it's FABULOUS, Triple Play with 
 MadCat trading off on Take 5 in Singapore with an orchestra player on  
what looks like a fore-shortened type of flute (perhaps he can clue us in on 
the  instrument)? I was blown away by the incredible energy/interplay here 
(I've been  privy to MadCat playing Take 5 on a diatonic before and he's 
terrific!): See,  THIS is what improv is or should be all about.

I still remember when you grabbed me right  after I got off stage and ran 
that by me for the first time at Buckeye many  years ago. :) It was DElicious.
