We Won!


The Scottish Jazz Awards took place last Monday evening, at Le Monde in Edinburgh. To be precise they took place in the Dirty Martini, the terrific room that my chum Todd Gordon used for his British Festival of Vocal Jazz in August. Its a fab space, GREAT for jazz and yours truly hosted with my usual blend of filthy innuendo, sarcasm and by being “quite nice really”. I’ll give a full report on all the winners, suffice to say I’d forgotten Jazz House was up for a gong. We won. Huge thanks to my wonderful team for being fab, and particularly to Richard Michael for being such a rock. And my fabulous chum, and one time BBC Producer. Keith Loxam won the Services to Jazz Award. Without him I wouldnt be doing what I do today. Thanks Keith. You’re a bad cat.

Chuffed to bits, now off to hear the SNJO Swing themselves into bad health…
