What a great success story from a bygone era. " We Were Treated like Royalty" in reference to Bill Harrah.... boy there's a phrase you never hear in the entertainment business anymore. I had the distinct privileged of having Don Rea as our musical director @ Circus Circus for decades. His talent and insight when it came to playing for other performers was nothing short of brilliant. Certainly tells of a musician who mastered his craft in all respects. As for Elias Johnson and how you handled this piece on these 2 amazing entertainers... I applaud you as well!
