Farewell good friends

Smooth's Jazz World

Well another couple of quality blogs have bit the dust after being hounded by the internet police.Farewell to Smooth and Jazzy Pier & Celo,your past work very much appreciated. The policy on this blog is very simple,if you download music you should only do so as a back up and I actively encourage you to support artists by buying cd's,vinyl whatever.E - music has some gems and I have spent a lot of cash buying music discovered on their fine blogs.Links to these now defunct blogs have been removed and replaced,check out the other links,what you do there is up to you.
