Fingerbuster

Our intrepid reporter, reviewer, bon vivant and man about town, Russell, has broken his typing finger so our boy's incisive descriptions of jazz at the cutting edge will be curtailed until the healing process is complete or he acquires the services of a secretary...
He assures me the incident was not alcohol related.

A quick update(typed slowly)...ultrasound scan shows no break. Severe bruising, in a splint but still getting out to gigs.

Pleased to hear that nothing's broken and look forward to your slowly typed reviews.
