I met Rafael
Méndez - Miron A. Montanino
Around 1964, I met Rafael,
even had lunch with him, sat 1 chair away.
He was giving a clinic at Colonie H.S., N.Y. I was 10 at the
I even know someone who may still have a reel to reel recording of it.
Went with my teacher, Edwin Johnson (he used to play for the
1930's-40's band called the CLIQUOT ESKIMOS).
Sat in the audience during rehearsal and show and remember thinking he
looked like a Hollywood star.
I had a great time.
