Monday night and we were down at The Red Lion enjoying Vasilis Xenopolis on saxophone;
And Nigel Price on guitar. You can just make out Andrew Cleyndert on bass although John Donaldson is out of sight on keyboards.
This is the last night when I have the advantage of checking the line up in 'Jazz in London', which does not come out this month after 43 years.
There is a rare view of Trevor Tomkins on drums here;
And I suppose there's been a process of venues closing, prices rising and a loss of opportunities just as there has been in every other area of grassroots music.
I'm puzzled why people don't seem to want to go out any more - given the rubbish on TV.
