As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Awards for Cumming and Carthy

John Cumming of Serious has been awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. This, alongside folkie Eliza Carthy who hit for an MBE, was significantly overlooked by the national media in their reportage - well they would wouldn't they?
Cumming and Serious have been involved in jazz promotion for many years and are, of course, the guiding factor behind the Gateshead International Jazz Festival held at Sage Gateshead each Spring. Carthy too is a not unfamiliar figure at Gateshead.
Congratulations to both. Long may they reign.
Lance.

Eliza Carthy did 2 great workshop sessions at the recent Sage Lau weekend. She soon had everyone singing, she's wonderfully easygoing, she kept saying 'Let's go to the pub'. She actually has a deep voice that would do credit to blues as well. Ann Alex
