Señor Blues by Horace Silver

Here’s a great Horace Silver track from yesterday’s rehearsal at Dan’s up the road. Following the greatest musical advice I ever had: “all try to start and end at the same time”. Crap recording on my phone but I think we more-or-less got there. [audio:|titles=SenorBlues]

Walking from Dalston to see Andy

Andy was in London and I was at a loose end, in need of stretching my legs. I ambled down to the Angel, Islington with my camera. Once you start looking, it’s impossible to stop. I was really late for Andy.    

Dan comes to my house and plays my piano on Thursdays

This has been going on for several weeks now. There’s coffee, and the cats clear off, and we warm up, and play, and discuss, and play some more. This week we recorded some things including this Monk tune, Ruby, My Dear. [audio:|titles=Ruby My Dear]
