'Tis the season...


Just a quick little post to share this super dope Christmas themed Jazz number by Roland Kirk. I only recently got round to listening to his "Hip!" album (picked up amongst this lot) in it's entirety and was totally blown away by "We Free Kings"...

Instead of posting an accompanying photo of the cover (which I'm sure you could find easily enough with a quick google image search), I thought I'd bust out this shot of me macking it with Santa, circa 1979.

Just a quick thankyou for your nice comments in your blog of Feb 9 2010 about the John Barton combo. We were resident at the Top Hat in Spennymoor, Co. Durham for 5 years, and it was a good, happy band. Where did you find the LP?
Incidentally, have you heard What the Dickens by Dankworth - probably my favourite.
Thanks again - John Barton

Hi John...

Thanks for passing through and leaving a comment. It's because of people like yourself that I write this blog. The 'Live At The Tophat' album was one of my favourite finds last year. The version of 'Vehicle' is fantastic.

I found it in a small charity book shop on the platform of the West Somerset Railway station at Minehead along with all the other records I wrote about in the post.

Could you contact me via email? I'd really like to ask a couple of things regarding your music.

many thanks - Darrell
