  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Dexter Gordon ‘Our Man In Paris’ (Blue Note NY USA stereo). Beautiful sounding copy, in pristine nick.
  2. Lou Gare RIP

    I think the last time I saw him was at the Westbrook Big Band Xmas gig at least 5 years back. I’d heard he had heart problems and was scheduled around then for an op. I don’t think he appeared wth the most recent Westbrook Big Band line up, the ‘Uncommon Orchestra’ - at least not to my knowledge. Very glad to have at least caught those earlier gigs. He was a long term resident of the county of Devon in his later years.
  3. Lou Gare RIP

    Just heard the very sad news that saxophonist Lou Gare has passed away. Founder member of AMM, important pioneer on the experimental music scene and until quite recently featured with Mike Westbrook’s Big Band in a more straight ahead jazz context. I was always very impressed with his fine playing. RIP.
  4. Happy Birthday to the best dressed man in jazz.

    Dannie Richmond had a strong claim, back in the day.
  5. How's the weather?

    Similar conditions here for much of yesterday - severe Atlantic storms. Clear skied though this morning, a welcome change. Hope it clears soon kinuta ! Those conditions sound as if they would even beat my Japanese umbrella - still in use and bought at the 7/11 in Tokyo in 2014 !
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Sony Miles Plugged Nickel CD Box - never tire of this one.
