GIJF Help wanted.

I wondered if readers could help me with my Festival decisions.  In deciding which jazz gigs to attend/avoid I frequently rely on the opinion of people whose opinions I respect.  Bireli Lagrene has been highly recommended to me, conversely he has been largely dismissed as little more than a technician.  So, should I invest my pension in a ticket or sit by the fire drinking cocoa and watching the TV?  Advice very welcome.
