Henry, thanks for the interview with Art Themen. I bought a Cyril Davis record when I was about thirteen and he's always appeared to have been neglected in the British blues scene. As a sax player myself it was great to hear Art talking about loads of great sax players that I've also enjoyed over the years which I haven't listened to in a while. Thanks Pete.
