Robin found himself deep in conversation with another bass player called Murray, and found they had a mutual friend. This chap had played in Benny Goodman's band and therefore knew Chris Griffin, an excellent trumpet player that played with Goodman for some time.
Robin knew Chris, as he was the father of one of his old friends Paul Griffin, who had played some incredible trumpet on a Force 10 album of Robin's. Incidentally, Paul also played the last post at John F Kennedy's funeral. Are you keeping up with me?
Suffice to say that these two were so engrossed in their reminiscing that they very nearly missed the transport taking them to the airport. Luckily, Robin spotted the fact that they were the only ones left standing in the hall, and they made a mad dash arriving just in time.
He's now waiting in Miami Airport for his flight home.
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
