Thanks for the video, Joan, I enjoyed it very much! It's such marvelous engineering! No honour for me though, I just happen to be someone who was born in this neighbourhood.
I grew up nor far from the Maastunnel (1942): two lanes for cars and a separate tunnel for pedestrians and cyclists. Like all children I screamed in the tunnel to enjoy the echo and I tried to guess where the lowest point was.
Loved the Ella, Joan! Oscar Peterson on piano. I saw bassist Ray Brown at Indianapolis' Jazz Kitchen about 16 years ago. My kind of jazz. Ian, we watched the Bennett/Gaga show here in the states, too. I heard they were together again in Copenhagens' Tivoli Gardens sometime this year. (I was there 46 years ago!) The Lady surprised me--no Ella, but good.
