Cheers Martin.
Some of the people were ridiculously talented. One husband and wife act do the entire ‘Suite Judy Blue Eyes’ (Crosby Stills and Nash at Woodstock). Highlights for me were a rendition of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ patterned after the Tom Petty / Geoff Lynne / Prince version (if you haven’t seen that, a tribute to George Harrison, I strongly urge you to look on YouTube and bask in the glory of Prince’s solo!) and the finale which was a super heavy version of The Doors’ ‘Roadhouse Blues’ before it all had to switch back to acoustics to avoid the police shutting it down.

Thanks all.  I know what you mean about the top to bottom buttoning thing with no shirt underneath but I kinda also like a shirt under a crew neck jumper too which is a similar vibe to this idea, kind of.  :o

Nice one Rod. I'd be thrown by the 'Bohemian Chic' thing but you seemed easy settled in with the others but still with a nod to your own style. Looks a great time too with the singing and stuff. I too was invited to bring a guitar last year to a wedding and have a bit of a 'Jam' and we too bashed out a version of That's Entertainment.

ADAM: I love a cardi as you well know but the bottom to the top variety usually is worn as is without anything underneath but you pull that off for definite mate. That'll be one of yours I'm guessing. Recognise the shirt as I have one myself.

Like it Adam.

I wear a button down regularly under a cardi...usually a plain one if cardi has piping but this works.

Not sure how this happened this morning but I'm quite liking it.

I read some praise for this graphic novel months ago (it won, it seems, the prestigious Angouleme Bande Dessinee prize), but as it was just available in french, I passed on it... till today, when I've just learned a spanish translation is on its way, with a due date of late april.

It's set in 1967 France, with a coming of age story intertwined with a spy plot, two genres most of us love. Add to that a charming (or should it be "chic"?) retro drawing style and we have a winner. 

Oddly, there doesn't seem to be an english edition right now (still it's been translated to german and italian, that I'm aware of)



Another fiction that uses 60s France (the Cote d'Azur during the summer, no less) as its backdrop is "Celeste 65", a novel by my fellow countryman José C. Vales. Having finished it just some weeks ago, I dare to state that it's a hugely enjoyable artifact that blends high culture and pop -even Mods get a mention!- to good effect, an unforgettable novel and a mastercourse in narrative structure. Highly recommended, but I'm afraid you'll have to wait till an english Publisher gives it a chance (Maybe too difficult for you, Ady? You can look inside in the Amazon page)

Looks great GS,

Im sure there will be a few cool tales and images in this.

Here is a link to an article about new British Jazz artists in this weeks Guardian newspaper you may be interested in.

Thanks, Woody. I'm not really aware of the nowadays jazz scene, but sometimes it's good to learn one or two things about it.
