The Jazz Police @ Monument, Newcastle - Feb 11

There he was, sitting in the sunshine, minding his own business, blowing alto, improvising to his heart's content when the local constabulary sped past, horns blaring DO DAH DO DAH DO DAH DO DAH. Paul Ruddick didn't miss a beat, seamlessly incorporating a DO DAH DO DAH DO DAH DO DAH phrase into the number he was blowing on. Priceless, honest guv'nor.
