Goodbye.

A small, but select, gathering of souls met outside the Jazz Café at noon today to pay tribute to Keith by way of reminiscence on video - I'd expected more. Nevertheless, it was an emotional experience and I was pleased I made the effort. Link.
To the best of my knowledge the tribute to Keith on Sunday will go ahead - 2 pm. The calling off of tonight's gig was a late decision by the musicians involved and not, as has been suggested elsewhere, an error on my behalf.

I've been on holiday in Wales this week and I couldn't believe it when I got a text about Keith. It's so sad.I only met Keith briefly a few times over the last 2 years, at Lindsey Hannon's Jazz Singing Class end of term gigs and Keith was always a perfect gentleman to me, so I think I must have done something wrong! This is the venue where I had my first real jazz singing experience. It would be great if the venue could be kept on somehow.
