I went to that gig last week and the the audience was made of few friends of the musicians. The event was focused and friendly, I loved it but I can't take it for my gigs. I don't exactly know what it is but I think I put gigs on to share, not music, but a moment in the city with people I can relate to. So it was a bit of a let down when I've hardly seen anyone from my mailing list in the Network Theatre last Thursday. Anyway we had about 35 people and it was all good spirited but it always saddens me to notice that this mailing list is just a waste of hopes.

Right... that was just to give you an idea of how emotional I can get about these things, in a more positive note I look forward to Jean-Luc Guionnet's visit. I don't know of a saxophone player in the UK playing like him and I'm curious to hear him play the organ - everyone I met raved about it.
He'll stay in London for a week playing on an organ in Holborn for three days and then he'll switch to the organ of St Mary the Old in Stoke Newington for 3 days before the concert takes place.

There's one thing I'm worse at than writing in this blog and it's writing the pitch for gigs (and the mailout would come next). Such a flawed and subjective thing all spotted by promotional crap.
Anyway I still write one in the -systematically unsatisfied- hope to bring in people who don't know these names and music fields. And you'll get plenty of lame, abstract, subjective nonsense (and complementary name dropping(s)) in the coming weeks as I found myself surpising busy with gigs.

First, let's get this one out of the way: Eddie Prevost Trio on 16th november in network theatre.

Second Jean-Luc Guionnet playing sax in Cafe Oto on Friday December 3rd.

And third Guionnet Jean-Luc playing organ in St Mary's Old Church on Monday December 6th.

very exciting init?
