Apologies for the lack of posting on my part lately, no doubt Ray was considering changing the blog title to One Wise Jazzhead! I have recently started a new job in deepest Australia the internet connection is poor and frankly the days are long. I have recorded a swag of material for UK Jazz radio and will now play catch up on the play lists in my week off. Watch this space.
