 A Magic Moment with Dizzy

SC5/6 gang :
Your mention of Mike Longo and Dizzy Gillespie reminded me of a wonderful moment as a youth when we lived  across the lake from the public pier in Cazenovia, N.Y. I was about 12 or 13. Early one morning I heard this fantastic trumpet sound from over by the pier. The lake was like glass that morning with a mist over the lake. I couldn't see the pier. I got on my bike and rode over to see what was going on. It was Dizzy complete with his trademark horn, all by himself. I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. We talked and he said he liked the sound he could get at the pier. He was sort of playing with his own echo that he got from across the lake which was about 1/2 mile wide. I listened as long as he stayed there. It was very, very neat. I guess he was staying at the Brae Loch Inn. 
Keep up the good work on the website. I read something in there about Lou McGarity. He was my father's best friend.
