The Dave Brubeck Quartet

June 30

Dear Jimmy,

I'll be sending you complete set of lyrics soon, so you can get started on the lyric cards. Have not had the opportunity to talk to any of the other principles involved in "Ambassadors" so can only pray they are learn-ing their parts.

Please, Jim, be careful in your announcements regarding the show that you make it extremely clear that this is a concert version, or excerpts from the score--not a full mounted production! If the rumor persists everyone will expect to see a Broafway show, which, of course, they will not--and cannot. With such short rehearsal time it will be a miracle to get through it! Do not build it up as the big event! It just cannot be with so little time.

Please--in ads--and press releases refer to is as a "concert version" of The Real Ambassadors.

Hope all is going well for you. If you can supply us with any info about how to contact L-H-R it would be appreciated.


Oli Brubeck
