  1. Frankly Jazz

    It was a really great show, well worth burning the midnight oil for and the quality of the restoration was terrific. I have videos of all 3 of the shows I think. They were put out here by TCB Releasing/ Kay Jazz, based in Frome, Somerset - who were presumably the European distributors here in the UK mentioned in the commentary. These came out in the 1980s. Not bad quality but the new restorations are far superior. That Jazz Crusaders episode is a big improvement on a fantastic little performance.
  2. Covid vaccination: poll

    Nonsense.
  3. Covid vaccination: poll

    Sorry to hear that. Relatives of mine have had the two Pfizer jabs completed within the planned period (and one of these is Up North) so that doesn’t sound at all typical. Colleagues of mine who are eligible have also all had at least one jab and I’ve not heard any of them indicate problems, which I have to say is pretty remarkable. Booked online via the NHS site - as soon as I selected the date for the first shot they offered me a booking slot for the 2nd. Slots were offered by day and to a resolution of 10 min intervals.
  4. Covid vaccination: poll

    Have to say that our booking system, which is done nationally, seems to have worked very well. The whole thing on the day of jab 1 was extremely well organised and I have jab 2 booked.

    Sorry to hear that. Hang on in there. Over here, we are chomping at the bit. Longer journey outings allowable from next week. An enticing prospect after such a long local lockdown.
  6. Jessica Walter, 1941 - 2021

    This is sad news - she was excellent in ‘Play Misty For Me’, a performance that still sends the chills. Not only that but the film had great jazz with Cannonball A., Zawinul etc. May she rest in peace.
  7. Yes, The Three Sounds ‘Standards’ crossed my mind as well. I was wondering also if Jean Luc Ponty’s ‘Live at Dontes’ counted as well but some of the tracks were on that Ponty brown bag twofer.
  8. How about Lee Morgan ‘Standards’? That wasn’t issued on the LT, brown bag series etc. on vinyl.
  9. Teddy Wilson set on last chance

  12. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Yes, I think so.
