Dorsets a pig to get to but very nice of course---my vote would be for London--its the easiest location to get to and i'm sure a venue would be easy to find---i can understand though if people would prefer a more holiday rural like setting.

I met both Ivor Mairants and Bert Weedon--one of them was an a**hole. Bert on the other hand was modest ,friendly and unpretentious--i didn't know at the time that he'd played with Django-- i did manage to ask Larry Adler what playing with Django was like--"every bit as fantastic as you could i...

God save us all from those relentless, unnecessary II V' s.
