    Why does he have a baton in his hand, when there’s not an orchestra in sight ?

  • Superb player and a top bloke – good luck to him!!

  • Ian Lush says:

    Wonderful musician, lovely man, had the pleasure of working with him when I ran the London Mozart Players and he was principal flute, congratulations to Jaime
