NO ROOM FOR SQUARES session 40, JAZZORISIT ON VINTAGE VINYL PLAYLIST, 13thAPRIL 2007. SECOND FRIDAY EACH AND EVERY MONTH. More playlists at www.jimz.biz…………………………………………………………………….
Well acker my bilks dan and scroobious. Well even though I say it myself a pretty good evening, with THE most interest in the tunes and me moving even further away from my tuesday night proper jazz listening evening. Now its groovin’ and fingerpoppin night. But what the heck a lot of jazz spirit is still there and who knows post the smoking ban I might try a weekday again as well as these Fridays to see if the spirit and the audience is still there. I had planned lots of tunes plucked from the new WAXPOETICS-marked WP- and managed a few, but cut back on funk britania tunes and played a lot of tunes for the first time with Stan Tracey’s Milk Wood being the featured lp., plus a little Compost label segment which was not planned but which just found their way onto the turntables. Drums seemed to feature more than ever and it is in the skins that most tunes do it for me. Speaking of which Dan from the Scroobious team was in the house and I wish them all the best with their superb “thou shalt not” single. Also beware at my next session of the trip on Saturday April 28th. I intend to play a lot of tunes by the artists namechecked in the single. Also I intend to produce my own single called “Thou shalt not cast record sleeves to one side unless the vinyl is removed”. So another one dusts the bite, now if only I could stop my mike cord getting tangled with the stylus arm I think I could make a go of this dj lark……BCNU DJ JD (aka jazzy jim)
