Seven Arts in Jan 2011

Well I did finally get to a gig in Jan 2011!
The Les Chisnell trio were playing some great melodic jazz.

Suprise start to 2011

Having missed one gig I intended to go to I thought that Jan 2011 was going to be a slow month for me...
Until I was contacted by Saville and Chrome recording studios to come in and take some photos, Tommy Evans and his orchestra were recording The Green Seagull Suite...
From what I heard (in the studio) this is going to be a CD worth buying when it comes out.
