It's always great to know soulful Bob is getting some more well-deserved airplay. Will listen in.
As a teen, loved his playing with the legendary Max Merritt. Still adore his flute playing particularly on their rendition of the Dizzy Gillespie classic,"Kush". Spell-binding. Later enjoyed seeing him live in the UK with Nucleus - a superb fusion band about which we hear too little.
