    The readers of this article might want to know that the band sounded "well rehearsed"because it was: by the time of these concerts at the Cafe Monmartre this quintet had been together for a year, playing almost every day, mostly at the Chat-Qui-Peche in Paris, with bassist
    Jean-Francois Jenny Clarke. There were also rehearsal almost every day for a year.

    It might be important for the listeners and musicians today to understand that the scene then (in the 60s) was completely different in terms of performance/rehearsal opportunities. We literally played every day for four hours ( except Mondays ) and rehearsed almost every day in addition.
