ON THE ONE HAND, the prospective world premiere in the Spectrasonics booth at NAMM didn’t happen. Among other things, Jeff was under the misapprehension that Jordan wouldn’t be there to demo the ‘keys. But he was! There. Yuh can’t control everything. What’s more, after a year of courtesy and near misses, Jeff (he likes to speak of himself in the third person, they say) and Paul had the pleasure of spending a number of hours with Mr. Persing, at his shop, after the show, during which time E. P. quickly took control of the ‘keys and its editor . . . the perfect guy, the quickest of studies, the prepared mind; we did a lot of listening.
