Powerless Capital, Memorable, Twoday feast and Casting Brass on the widget above are all new today. So far the weekend has mostly been devoted to working on pieces. I have to work out when I am going to see SJ again before she stops gigging for a while.
BBC4 has been having a jazz weekend with programmes on singers, pianists and sax players. There was also a concert by Dave Brubeck from the mid 60s. Melody Gardot spoke in praise of Nina Simone with passion.
Courtney Pine sounded great in the 80s and made me wonder why he isnt a bigger star these days. The audiences on the jazz clips look like they are from a bygone era but that s not how the music sounds.
