No Need to be Blue All Day Sunday

Well I've been away the past two weekends and heard some great jazz at Scarborough and Lockerbie. But, it's always nice to get back to the grey, grey, concrete of home so tomorrow afternoon I will be taking a Metro to Central, saying hello to Doctor Jazz on the way, and dropping in on the Jazz Café Jam Session. Always a good way to spend Sunday. Then, after a can and conversation with King Keith I shall hot foot it over to the Bridge Hotel where If Destroyed Still True are this weeks Splinter band.
A Leeds based outfit that first impressed me at Scarborough two years ago I look forward to hearing them again.
Jazz Café Jam Session: Mid-afternoon until the cows come home.
Bridge Hotel: 8pm- circa 10:15pm.
