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.

Budtones @ The Globe -Feb. 15.

Stu Finden (sax);  Fiona Finden (sax, vocals);  James Archer (piano);  Aidan Finden (guitar);  Jim Crinson (bass);  Eric Stutt (drums).
(Review & Photo by Ken Drew).
A lovely mix of tunes (standards and originals) and a nice band mix made for a good sound all round.   The audience size  was minimal until the Arena event (earlier start) provided some ‘top-up’ numbers to the audience  – very useful passing trade, including two prospective New Members!  Also two members sampling the scene for the first time – and keen to help! 
Starting with The Message, the tunes ranged from standards – West Coast Blues,  God Bless the Child,   So What,   4&6,  Some Other Blues interspersed with originals (mix of Finden and/or Finden) – including Stu’s Blues, Lullaby of Wordland, then the last tune – So Tired.  The sax’s were clear and dynamic with a good interplay between the two, and nice hand-offs by Stu to the others for their share of the solo spots.  Aiden did well for his first gig with the enlarged band line-up.   Overall a good night of live jazz!
