I just read Michael Sanders note regarding Fletch's recording of "Romeo
& Juliet" (I will buy it tomorrow) & I thought I should mention the recording
"The Best of Fletch" available from THE JOHN FLETCHER TRUST FUND. The CD and
a book "John Fletcher - Tuba Extraordinary" was available from THE JOHN FLETCHER TRUST FUND, 14 HAMILTON TERRACE, LONDON, ENGLAND NW8 9UG. Sadly, the Honorable Secretary
of the JFTF was Philip Jones and that address is his. If one wanted the CD or book
I am sure Mrs. Jones would forward the request to the other trustees, Margaret Fletcher or
Derek Bourgeouis. The book is 15 pounds sterling & the CD is 12.50 pounds sterling (a check in British Sterling must be sent as they are unable to accept other currency). Most
commercial banks will convert US Funds to British Sterling, some for a hefty fee. Anyway,
both the CD and book are well worth it as anyone who has heard Fletch play can attest.
For information on Philip Jones, check out the book "The Odyssey of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble" available for $22.00 from Robert King Music Company. Also worth the read.
Thanks for indulging me and good listening.
P.S. A British pound is about $1.50 US right now. The above prices from England include shipping
