    I met Mr. and Mrs. Bellson at San Jose Jazz Festival many years ago. Mrs. Bellson enthusiasm was infectious. We crossed paths many times during my time in San Jose via community and church related events. She managet to have the same grace each time. Over those years, I began to recognize Mr. Bellson's contribution to music and his talents as a drummer. I recently purchased James Brown' Soul on Top after a suggestion from a friend. That was really a very nice synergy of both artists. I have since moved from San Jose but that one encounter opened my world up to so much more music. Thank you and continued blessings to the Bellson family. God Bless.

    Francine - I'm going to start calling you "Eagle Eyes"! How in the world did you spot Louie's magazine cover on the Munsters? That's fantastic (and I still like that TV show too ;-D)

    The beautiful though unnamed woman in white is the famous second wife of Louie Bellson, the accomplished M.I.T.-trained engineer & physicist Francine Wright. Bellson had a discerning eye for beauty and talent. The narrator’s voice is familiar, though I couldn’t place a name to it, so had to peek: CBS’s Ed Bradley.
