"The Majesties of the Blues" - Ellington/Marsalis tribute coming up at the Spice of Life

Anna Lacy, York's number one jazz impresario and Facebook Friend, has drew my attention to a gig at London's "Spice of Life" pub just off Charing Cross Rd.
"The Majesties of the Blues" is a tribute to Wynton Marsalis and Duke Ellington and features Abram Wilson, Jason Yarde, Denys Baptiste, and members of Wilson's new quartet. It's on August 20 start 8:00 pm.
Having had an enjoyable evening at the venue earlier this month I can recommend it as a nice intimate setting and well worth a visit for those in the area on that date.
Thanks Anna, I'm hoping to get to one of your gigs at the BLACK SWAN (not the White Swan as I inadvertantly entered originally) sometime in the not too distant future. Lance.
