Speaking of Fred's book, the Funky Fred Wesley Store is sold out of hardback copies, which are going for more than $80 USD on Amazon.com, but there's still time to get an autographed softcover in time for holiday giving. Also available is the CD compilation, "The Best of Fred Wesley, Vol 2." Visit www.funkyfredwesley.com.
