What am I actually listening to? In an attempt to maintain a list of the music I’m playing, I will be trying to keep a record of jazz that I am playing here at downwithit.info. As this is an opportunity for me to switch off and enjoy, I probably won’t offer too much by way of comment or appreciation in these posts. Nor will I list non-relevant plays by artists playing other styles of music.
A very quiet week so far.
Thursday and Friday 10 & 11 July 2014
Listening to the forthcoming contemporary sets up for review- which will be revealed when I have fully familiarised myself with them (one will be looked at in August). Regular readers may recall that I am writing about at least one new release each month, with a view to ensuring that downwithit.info doesn’t become a mausoleum of old recordings.
Looking further ahead, Abdullah Ibrahim plays the Royal Festival Hall as part of The London Jazz Festival in November and I’ve bought tickets (selling fast).
