Latest post of the previous page:

I was a big Bowie fan in the 70s and 80s (how can you tell?), but thatnks a bio I'm currently reading, I'm listening to some of his more secent stuff. I kind of gave up on him around the "China Girl" period as (I thought) I was way too cool to listen to such commercial music (totally ignorng the fact that Ziggy Stardust and Alladin Sane were alo commercial). I'm currently listening to "Heathen", which I think is the best post 80s music of his I have heard (though, I haven't heard all that much)- and not a sparkle in sight!




drat! I forget which part of the URL you cut before putting the tags on (however, I'm amazed that I seem to know what a URL and tags are!)

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Thank you Steven. That was delightful. It is years since I heard Leroy Anderson's piece. I always loved it. Such fun. You've given me a great start to the day.

Amazingly, THISwas composed only in 1992. For some reason, it seems as if it should be "traditional" - lost in the mists of time.

If I had composed this, I could die happy.

That's strange, I get everything but the actual video when I click on you link, Nick, ooer. Nothing to do with the link I think (since it worked for Lewis).

Nope, for some reason, even when I signed in, I do not get the play-screen up in YouTube however I select it! Everything on the screen but!

Taken a look at my settings and can see nothing there that suggests anything.

Later: Hurray! after a reboot, five Firefox crashes, a lot of swearing (essential) and two threats to defenestrate the laptop it all behaved and I enjoyed the piece - thanks, Nick!

Lovely.

(The name "Jay Ungar" sounds familiar -- didn't he play with David Bromberg in the '70s?)

A bit later, having had the earth-shattering revelation that I could find out myself by using Google: Yes, he did.

Nah, it just means that you're not a humanist with acceptable taste in music. :)

Andrew Hill's "Refuge" - I have just seen the lead sheet for this magnificent (if quite brief, and maybe under-orchestrated) tune, so I will be practising it like mad. Any comments on Eric Dolphy (the second solo, with all the swoops)?. He died fairly suddenly in 1964 and was totally unique IMO - more so even than Coltrane, with whom he played

I was at the Runrig gig in the Northern Meeting Park in Inverness last night. Two hours of non stop magic.
