Thanks Stu. All the best to you too. Merry Christmas and a happy new year of course :wink:
Romane played at the pizza express many years ago...
But he hasn't been back to London ever since.
As you already guessed he is coming in the place of Rocky and Noé who can't make it over this time...
It'll be nice to see you then Stu.
Cheers

Romane also headlined the first festival that Mr Cruickshank put on in '97. I think I have some of that on video somewhere, including a jam with Romane, myself and Lee Clark in Mr LeVoi's tent. I think the band he played with consisted of Ian C, Andy Crowdy and I can't remember whether Jez Cooke was playing 2nd rhythm or if there was a violinist instead. I do remember it was next to a busy train track which disrupted a lot of the tunes.
Aaah the memory's short but the tales are long. There was beer available too.

(on my own to meet with fellow jazz musicians)

I was there. I remember when Romane had finished on stage, he stood by himself at the edge of the audience, completely ignored so being such a warm hearted compassionate person, I went up to him and said how well I thought he had played. He looked at me as if I had farted.:(

The pig roast was mega!! :D

Romane is a very very kind person! He has very high expectations when music is concerned but I think we all have as much...
He doesn't understand a word of English though... Maybe that's what got you on to a false impression... :wink:

Yep it's true. I can't deny my roots. I have more in common with Micky, Gary and Robin than playing guitar. Although Southport is a bit more upmarket I believe.


Romane is an awesome musician/composer, one day I'll get the vid converted.
Just by coincidence, I came across a youtube video the other day with the title :
'Romane - Playing Outside'. I instantly thought it was about the maestro's views on instrument projection when dealing with outdoor playing. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it was a jazz reference.
Damn fine clip tho'

hot-diggety DJM, I is residing in the DEEP South. Dorset. Where the people have webbed fingers but the ducks don't. There is a Jurassic coastline here which fires my passion for paleontology.

:) In venues down here,jazz is only jazz if there's a saxophone in the band and a bird going 'skiddly doo' over everything.
