Re: Joni Mitchell

Re: Joni Mitchell

Joni Mitchell is a very special talent indeed. I'd like to have seen the documentary myself.

My 'fin...

Gypsy Jazz

Fab concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall last night from Eduardo Niebla 's trio (Carl Herring on second guitar; Dharmesh Parmar on Indian tabla). Eduardo's influences range far and wide, from flamenco and jazz through to Indian musical traditions, and it's easy to be reminded at times of Django, McLa...

I first heard Gordon play when I was in the second year of a design course, spending my grant (those were the days!) on as many concert tickets as I could afford. The venue was Leicester's De Montfort Hall, the year was 1978 and Gordon's band were supported by Shirley Roden. Unsurprisingly it was a ...
