while the gloomy winter months seem to come closer, there are some good news


- I crossed the boundaries of the M25 and played a gig on the isle of Wight
- today it is sunny on the East End
- the White Hart music Sundays are up and running.


I will not bother you about my insular experience. I will just say that Croatian ferries sail nicer seas and that everything I've seen of the island was a big hotel with a gorgeous ballroom.


Tonight, after the sunset, the White Hart will host the monthly jam session led by Dave Hammer.
Not only usually we have great musicians that join us, but the White Hart had a great refurbishment.
This somehow improved the quality of the audience. Also the lack of football on the big screen helps quite a lot.
We will miss the emotion of the hailing crowd during solos. The soloist used to think "this phrase must have impressed them" while the hailers just though "Arsenal scored!"


During the last gigs, a participating audience was following the music, putting money in the jar (free event with collection!) and nodding with a smile each time a John Coltrane lick was played. These are the so-called Trane Spotters (geeky joke stolen from Stephen Howard)


Tonight's jam is supposed to start at 8 pm SJT (Standard Jazz Time) that corresponds to about 8.30 GMT.


The White Hart pub is located at 1 Mile End Road, Stepney, LONDON E1 4TP, on the corner of Cambridge Heath Road, just 300m east of Whitechapel Station (District Line plus Hammersmith & City Line tube services, plus London Overground East London Line). Also, Bethnal Green (Central Line) and Shadwell (DLR) stations are only a ten minute walk away, there are several bus routes right outside the pub, and even Boris bikes just across the street. Check Sunday engineering works line/station closures at http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravelnews/realtime/track.aspx?offset=weekend


I hope to see you there

Hope it goes well tonight, I have very fond memories of the IOW, pity you didn't get chance to see more having been brave enough to venture across the water:)

I am fine with the sea, I just prefer the lustful blue of the Mediterranean to the gloomy grey of the Channel.
The M25 is the real deal: life ends at 5PM, outside its reassuring tarmac ring.

Why don't they have horses in the IOW?


Because they have Cowes to Ryde.





Runs for cover, forgetting coat.

A better version:
Why don't they have horses on the Isle of White?
Because they have cows to ride.

Why is nobody laughing?

Surprised you did not approve of the Solent's four tidal peaks a day. Does Croatia have something similar?

Indeed, the IoW ferry.
We went over to the IoW a few years ago for a short break. It was the first time I had been there for some 30 years and it didn't seem to have changed much. Slightly quaint, slower paced and likeable. The trip down Southampton Water on the car ferry is also very pleasant.

Hope the gig went well.

Sadly not. You can spend the whole day on the beach without being washed away. Food is provided in the nearby gostiona and it does not rain so often.
