Xmas books

Did okay for books this Christmas - 4 to be exact - everyone a winner. In no particular order, although this first one is the one that gave me the most pleasant surprise - Johnny Lonely by Pete Tanton. Pete, you may recall, is Extreme Measure's ace American trumpet player who wowed the Bridge audience a couple of weeks back. If he writes half as good as he plays then this is going to be one helluva book. At first glance it looks good... watch this space.
Jack Harvey's A Darker Shade of Blue is crime fiction with a jazz tinge to it - right up my alley.
Blowing My Own Trumpet by Kenny Ball is an autobiography of the trad legend who played The Sage earlier this month and as one who has followed his career from way back this too should make me start burning the night oil.
Away from the jazz The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book has already had me splitting my sides with laughter.
Thank you Santa - you done good this year and that's apart from the Calvin Klein Bomber Jacket!
Lance.
