These days I'm quite a sight; with a broken back I can't cope with three hours perched on an armchair, so I have to take a folding chair with me.
It was crowded and we ended pushed right up at the back, in the corner where the fruit machine used to be. I had a tough day, so by the time I got there I was worn out.
Good music though, this is Martin Shaw;
I do love a mute on a well played trumpet.
You can't see them but in the background was Trevor Tompkins on drums, Dave Green on bass and Kate Williams on keyboards.
We also had a new guest this week - Frank Griffith on Saxophone;
I've always enjoyed the way Martin Shaw plays 'Bye Bye Blackbird' on a mute but tonight the duet with Frank Griffith was something special; two very quiet and breathy soloists on a quiet night.
It's definitely not summer any more!
