I'm sorry, there is something intrinsically sad about this picture. can't put my finger on it, but yeah, sad...

How is it sad? Not saying you're wrong; just that I don't quite see it.

I'm lucky to own "Place Vendome" with the Swingles and the MJQ. On that cover, they all look so happy, sort of like this picture!

They have their own web site and a lengthy Wikipedia entry that has them still going strong after forty years. I'd be happy, too.

Ward is definitely alive and living in France. There is, however, a second version of them. The first group seen here "retired" in the mid-70s.

My second comment on your blog. Again I find something that most people wouldn't be aware of. Unbelievable but I used to listen to this group in high school! Great pic.
