Time for a Fix!

Don't get me wrong - I love Newcastle and the North-East but I like a break and, rather than sunbathe on some undiscovered shore, I like to spend a few days (and some dosh!) in our capital city. So, tomorrow I head south.
It's the London Blues Festival although there seems to me to be as much jazz as blues on offer but what's in a name anyway?
Tomorrow night I will be listening and reviewing American trumpet ace Roy Hargrove at Union Chapel (Highbury and Islington on the Victoria Line or number 30 bus.)
Hargrove has won numerous Down Beat polls so I'm looking forward to hearing him for the first time live.
The following evening, at the same venue, guitarist Al di Meola struts his stuff. I recently reviewed Al's latest CD so I know to expect some very interesting material. Both gigs kick off at 7:00pm so I may even manage to catch Yots at The Spice.
Lance.
