Send me your list(s)

Anybody out there want to send me their fave playlists or gig lists - I'm beginning to think my 10,000 plus monthly visitors (20,000 if you use the Google stats!) never go to gigs or listen to CDs! Which isn't true as I know that Russell once bought a record..

I too saw Jaco at those City Hall gigs. It changed my approach to learning an instrument - I gave up before I started! Hearing Roland Kirk at the Newcastle Jazz Festival had the same effect.
