(Review by Jamie O - a.k.a Lance)
Another recipe for Jam at "The Caff" and a potent one it is too.
Prepare a seasoned mixture of piano, bass and drums, add some yet to ripen trumpet (or wild trombone) and simmer for 12 bars or (much) longer. Bring back to the boil and add a black Selmer saxophone and a blue hat. Tenderly stir in a good measure of mature trumpet,  an assortment of percussionists and an extra bass. Separately prepare a generous helping of Ricki Lee Jones to spice it up and Voila! Nous avons la confiture.
All we need now is the bread...
