The finale for our November is non other than Bugsy’s – it’s a party with good friends old and new and it wouldn’t be the same without you.

Also happy to bring you news of an ancillary JRT related project currently underway – mostly as an excuse to use the word ‘ancillary’.

Recent Sundays have been further blessed as I lend piano and arranging work to a remarkable local gospel recording artist. I’ll be sure to steer you to her album upon completion as you won’t want to miss out.

Now see that’s what’s known in the business as a ‘teaser’ (did it stave off any ‘unsubscribe’ requests? no? oh it’s my inane blather and grammatically deformed copy that’s the problem? But I’m doing the best I can with this… what’s that? Oh – that’s what makes it so sad – that this is the best I can do? No I’m not saying you’re wrong, just that it’s hurtful. Say again?… Oh that I sometimes lose focus and spin off tangentially? I mean I guess sometimes I get distracted – like that one time when that dude dressed as Captain America showed up and I… oh I’m, I’m doing it again? yeah… Righto – ok so what were we talking about? – microwave cookery or something to do with vitamins?)
