Walkin' The Dog.

I was walking my dog through Saltwell Park on Sunday afternoon when I heard music in the air. Ida Sweet as Apple Cider was floating through the trees. As I approached the bandstand I could see the Tyne Valley Stompers finishing their song. I took a couple of snaps but I was hampered by the dog who for some strange reason is not a Jazz fan and was more interested in chasing squirrels. It would have been pleasant to sit and listen to the band on a balmy Sunday afternoon but it was not to be and I was dragged off in search of furry creatures. I would love to have done a review but for that damned Philistine dog.
