APPJAG Latest.

So, as the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group's award ceremony* approaches, I've been taking stock and marvelling at just how we've managed to keep this blog going for over ten years and culminating with this, our first nomination for an award in the Jazz Media category of one of the major UK jazz awards!
My small, but much-loved and appreciated, coterie of contributors are as much to do with this as I am and, without them, it wouldn't have the appeal that the page view numbers seem to suggest that it has.
Nevertheless, like a band, a sports team or a Friday night get together, we're always on the lookout for new faces. 
You go to a gig, maybe even take a surreptitious photo, and come away thinking that was great/crap but would also like to share your emotions with the [jazz] world. If you do, then this is the place. 
As we're situated in the northeast, preference is given to those reviews that relate to the area but, if your gig involves a 'name', then the boundaries are infinite - come in Ronnie's, Birdland, the bar at the end of the street...
We just want to hear from you, get you involved.
Lance.
PS: Thanks to Simon Spillett, Jo Harrop, Georgia Mancio and all the others who've shown their support for our nomination..
*Ceremony takes place at Pizza Express Live (Holborn) on Tuesday, October 16.
