Hurry! Book now for Woodlawn

New plots have recently been released next to Jazz Corner in Woodlawn Cemetery, NYC  and three quarters of them have already been snapped up. One dyed-in-the-wool fan paid a jazz-cool $10,000 for her spot near to those of Duke, Miles et al.
Meanwhile, in the land of the living jazz musician, Trombone Shorty continues to tour the album – Say That to Say Thisand in doing so continues to speak of the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. TS was one of the lucky ones. He got out of New Orleans, heading  for Houston, making it far as Dallas (the eight hour journey taking him more than twenty hours). He switched on the tv in his hotel room to see friends and neighbours clinging to rooftops. He formed his first band at a young age recruiting his peers…four, five and six year olds!   
Thanks to the BBC World Service for fulfilling its public service jazz broadcasting remit – Weekend for the Woodlawn item (6.05am) and Outlook for interviewing Trombone Shorty (7.32am). Both programmes broadcast August 24 and available for 7 days on BBCiplayer..
