Sept. Programme (and change of day) @ Spice of Life


On those periodic occasions when I travel down to London for a few days my first priority is to ensure that my schedule allows me to be free to visit the Spice of Life on a Wednesday lunchtime where you can hear some of the best lunchtime jazz in the UK and, on occasion, maybe even the world!

Apart from the jazz, the beer's acceptable, the food looks tempting and it's always good to chat with David Burr who organises the gigs.

However, as of September 2 the sessions move from Wednesdays to Mondays but, as can be seen from the programme below, nothing else changes ...
