A Rare Treat: “Buddy’s Habits” John Picket on Slide Whistle

Since first hearing the Slide Whistle solo in Arnett ‘King Mutt’ Nelson’s and Charley Straight’s number “Buddy’s Habits”, I had longed to film it. John Picket assuaged my whim with his very own magical rendition when playing with Christine’s Stackyard Stompers at Lemsford Jazz Club in March, 2017.

Recaptured Moments with Tuba Skinny, 2014

Time spent at Fest Jazz back in 2014 still brings back vivid memories.
That’s when I met and filmed Tuba Skinny.

On the Friday evening prior to the festival proper, they were guest stars at the legendary
Bar Tal ar Pont. The bar was packed with enthusiastic fans and filming was just
a little challenging!

One of these days I will get to catch up with Tuba Skinny again. Meantime, hit the link to find more of my Tuba Skinny YouTubes filmed at Bar Tal ar Pont.

And take at look at whats on at Fest Jazz this year.

Time for another Alan Cooper Remembered Gripping Yarn – Enjoy!

As I’ve said before: Why keep my “Gripping Yarns” to my own personal madcap experiences, when there are others to tell specifically linked to Jazz. For instance, this yarn which James Evans (aka John Jamie Evans) has brought to my attention also fits the “Gripping” Bill!

Just hit the link below for another fun feature from Jamie Evans:

Farewell to the Clydes

 

And here again is the link to his John James Evans

Enjoy!
