  • Interests I'm a retired postal administrator. Loved jazz since my teenage years. I'm particularly interested in 50s/60s hard bop, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, in fact I like most thing from that period. I'm partial to a bit of free jazz too as long as it's not too noisy. Also I've been a big David Murray fan ever since his first album in 1976. Outside of jazz I enjoy a bit of fishing when the weather's nice and can spend a lot of time watching movies (mostly dvds these days rather than the cinema.<br /><br />

  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    The Jazz at the Academy tracks. Shame about the fake applause.
  2. Sadly I'm not really up to making London gigs these days. Iwould have loved the opportunity to see the wonderful Hugh Ragin again. Fortunately I can think back 30 years or more to seeing the AEOC on two occasions, The atmosphere at the Roundhouse for their first appearance was absolutely electric - unforgetable.
  3. A good one. I only came across it recently.
  4. Any thing with Nigel is bound to be good. Let's hope he pulls it off.
  5. Monk + Giants of Jazz tour

    I saw the band in London. I don't recall it being particularly exciting. My main recollection is that Blakey, Winding and McKibbon came into the same pub we were in for a pre gig drink. Didn't have the nerve to approach them.
