This week I had a big treat at The Red Lion, Isleworth - the great Art Themen came to play;
Covering a variety of saxophones, one of the last great exponents of British Bebop is not to be missed;
Trevor Tomkins was on drums, Robin Aspland on keyboards and Tim Wells on bass.
For me the evening was tinged with sadness as the last issue of 'Jazz in London' magazine was handed out. I'll do a special article here to commemorate its passing but it has been a vital part of the London jazz scene for 43 years and will be missed enormously.
All the same, it was a great night of music - the finest modern jazz in town tonight.
