  1. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    Aaah yes, thanks, the scoring pegs make it ever so clear. I'll stick with watching the snooker at the Crucible for now.
  2. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    Gotta love sports that involve a tea break. - I can't make head or tail of the score tables though.
  3. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    Listening right now - beautifully relaxed, just what I needed. Got myself a couple of Chris Biscoe's too while I was about it.
  4. Mike Westbrook - finally the big band is back...

    Thanks mjazzg for the link! I'llprint it and put it inside my copy of the album. - I've been listening to the CD fo a few weeks now and am thoroughly enjoying it. This and the studio album stand side by side, each in it's own right. Good liner notes go with the new release too. There are some interesting & knowledgeable comments too on the original bluemoments page (without the twitter suffix in the link)
  5. Mike Westbrook - finally the big band is back...

    Yes, I was curious to see/hear him with the band and would have liked to be there. - Hoping for that recording
  6. Mike Westbrook - finally the big band is back...

    Thanks for the heads up, Bob. Great that you were able to catch that. This morning's trawl of the web came up with two new morsels of info: There will be a radio broadcast on NDR Info on 15th September (22:05 German time) about Westbrook/Rossini/possibly NDR BigBand https://www.ndr.de/info/sendungen/jazz/Jazz-vom-9-15-September-2019,programmseptember216.html (not sure if it will stream abroad) Also a photo of good-looking Kate & Mike preparing Kate's September solo show of her paintings in London: http://pigtagram.com/media/B0YAEyelrwr

  14. Seeing Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers Live

    1987 Chicago Jazz Festival (Open Air) What I remember most was the noise made by the "audience" in the park. Most people had brought picnics and were interested in their own talk rather than the music. It was also the night when the Globe Unity Orchstra played their last gig (except for a reunion 2002 in Aachen/Germany*). I remember enjoying that one very much. ____ *to the best of my knowledge
