Well I would, Ali, but I think that no-one really wants to hear about me listening to old Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix records. I have tried to interest people in the new British jazz that's igniting London and I think some have taken the bait but I'm still basically living in the past. This forum was always a good place to be dragged kicking and screaming into the present but it has got very deserted lately. It may just have finally run its course, what with Charlie being dead for nearly eight years now and the dreaded F***b*** having annexed just about every other niche music website on the planet - as well as the conversations that used to take place here. The difference being that over there, conversation is reduced to one or two sentences whereas here one could expound at length.

But just to show willing, I'll share the record I got in the post today - which AndyM hipped me to some time ago. It's sort of the ultimate bitchy girl group pop record. Norman and I still hope to one day host a DJ slot called "Baby It's You" which will concentrate specifically on this kind of thing. Jamie almost had a venue for us a few weeks back...

This is a lovely record. Nothing special, no world got broken, no genre established, just a lovely record. If you don't like it, so what? They (whoever they were) likely made it, collected a session fee, and forgot about it.

Unlike us, of course.

'Cos I immediately check the writer/arrangerer/debt collector and see that it was produced by Feldman, Goldstein, and Gottehrer, and the latter - Richard Gottehrer - was once a Ping Pong guest on the Saturday night show of Charlie Gillett that spawned this forum. And they wrote and produced, "Sorrow" - 'With your long blonde hair and your eyes of blue....'. And it all goes round in circles. And we're still here, crapping on to each other, and long may we do so.

The other day in a charity shop I found a 5 cd box set of the complete Jelly Roll Morton recordings from the 20s and 30s. Unopened, still sealed from the manufacturer. Price: £1.00

At the moment I'm doing my accounts and listening to... Jimi Hendrix.

This year between posting EJThackray, and Nubya Garcia music links on fb, Adam, you posted another current london jazz music link/track, following on from a gig you'd been to. Can you remember what it was? Your fb wall is probably far too dense for anything but the most exhaustive search!

Thanks Alan. A great listen whilst pondering the demise of 2017.
Current 'Jazz' guys, I'm getting edgy...

Happy good year everybody! I have to admit I have been a little overly occupied with the (blushes) facebook lately, contacting old friends and relatives. But I have been missing the livelier days here a little. Then there's work, family, finding a new job and what have you.

In the meantime I have been listening to this:
