Hey Navarro ...Hi Sunray Do you know Fritton lake in Norfolk ? I spent many happy weekends there while at university. Okay who I like predominately west coast Shorty Rogers when the line up consisted of the Condolis, Art Pepper and Jimmy Guiffre. Had the privilege of seeing them live in the fifties in Newcastle City Hall A Norman Granz promotion.
Today's musicians really liked Kenny Garrett but now find his solo work a little repetitive (But hell who am I to criticize ) Alex Han brilliant.
But my heroes Desmond, Pepper and Konitz. Seen Desmond when he toured with Brubeck and Konitz when he was in the Kenton band.
The venue was always the Newcastle City Hall and just after the UK musicians union lifted their ban on American Bands touring in the UK. The bands I have seen there are too numerous to list but include most of the greats, players and singers. Regds N.
