I heard from Venice today. He had a stroke in December and is home recuperating. I told him we missed him on the cruise, but hope he is taking it easy and getting better.

Thank you very much Mel for the update.

We really wanted to finally meet him and he was missed on the cruise.

I hope we do get to meet him sometime.

Get up and around soon, Venice. We miss you !

I hope it's a speedy recovery. My dad had a heart attack 15 years ago and a stroke 10 years ago and now he is feeling better then ever.

Get well Venice!!

Thanks Mel for checking in on him. I hope he gets well soon!

If anyone's interested, we could put together a Smooth Jazz CD and send it to him. I'll volunteer to "aquire" the songs and record them to CD, if you guys want to suggest 10 or so songs for the CD.

Mean Dean I think it is a great idea. Since Venice also missed his Playboy smooth jazz cruise. I thought it was be nice to have these peformers on the CD. Here is the list:
Special Guest
Herbie Hancock

Dianne Reeves, Keb’ Mo’,Poncho Sanchez, James Moody, Roy Hargrove
James Carter, Eldar, Roberta Gambarini and New Birth Brass Band

Dianne Reeves does a great version of "Love for sale" it's on the I Remember CD. Here is a live version of the song from Youtube.

Thank you so very much Melody, for advising us of Venice's condition.

We all pray, Venice, for your very speedy recovery and return to the boards. You certainly are sorely missed.
