    This is FANTASTIC! I’m glad to see this great man has been so honored! We ALL owe a debt of gratitude towards Mr. Russell. It’s ALWAYS good to see the history of this great art preserved. As Laurence Oliver said in the Neil Diamond remake of “The Jazz Singer”, “If you don’t know where you’ve been, how can you know where you are going????”
