“TJ” in The Crypt!

TJ Johnson plays The Crypt, St Martin in the Fields, London

24th  November, 2010, was a very special day for me. Not just because it was my birthday (never mind which one!) but also because that day my son Alec and I took in TJJohnson and His Band at The Crypt, St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, London.

Not just for that reason either but also because that was the day Jazz&Jazz was conceived.

On the journey to London Alec and I discussed a blueprint for the concept. Inspired by TJ’s band that evening, the next day Alec immediately discussed the blueprint with his Tonic Fusion partner, Mike Snow, and very soon Jazz&Jazz was launched.

So now that Jazz&Jazz is well and truly on the jazz map with a mention in the May issue of Just Jazz magazine, I considered it high time to feature “TJ” and His Band with photos I took that night in The Crypt.

After all, his gig added extra inspiration to our ideas for the site. Thank you “TJ”!

    I play this gig the last Wednesday of every other month, next one 30th May. It’s always a joy to be part of this ensemble. It’s a super venue, always packed and always swinging! Long may it last. Cheers, chaps!
