They walk on silently, soldiers of music
picking up their instruments to explore
The terrain of Ellington & Strayhorn
In the theatre of jazz,
producing elephant vocals with the lamenting
jungle wail of Harrison's Sax...
no howdy do or Hellos
from these bros.
serious music is what they're here to do
and no time was wasted in this concert
by " musings " ,
A musician plays
and this is what they did...

About this blog - contact details.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
