Facebook et al …

Just a brief post. Facebook recently “updated / improved” their social media site. Can’t say I, nor many others were enamoured by the convoluted results. In fact it seemed to result in a degree of turmoil and appears to have been quickly withdrawn by Facebook!

The problem is a dependence on Facebook to draw attention to and promote the latest features published here on Jazz&Jazz. The solution would be for jazz fans to regularly visit Jazz&Jazz to keep up with our very latest posts and features, rather than depend on cross referencing from Facebook, nor indeed other Social Media sites.

So the bottom line is that I would much rather fans made regular visits here – to Jazz&Jazz – to share input. After all, Jazz&Jazz posts on Facebook appear here first.

You can use Speak Your Mind below to comment on this and other Jazz&Jazz features. For starters your thoughts and comments on this post would be hugely appreciated.

Ironically I will now share this on my Facebook Jazzers Group – https://www.facebook.com/CelebratingJazz – to spread the word!

Meantime why not enjoy my new series of Jazz&Jazz YouTubes posted

Yes, it rained a little, but not nearly enough to dampen applause for Tad Newton’s Jazz Friends at Fest Jazz 2014. Nor to dampen spirits – watch out for the dancers
who took to the floor.

Joan Chamorro conducts his phenomenal band of youngsters in the spellbinding finale at Châteauneuf-du-Faou’s Tenth Anniversary Fest Jazz, July, 2014. Absorb the rapturous audience applause as I pan around the packed marquee between numbers.

A spellbinding session and it was a privilege to film it. I asked one of
Tuba Skinny’s musicians what he thought of The Sant Andreu Band.
He replied, “Scary Good!”
