Sep 202019

this is another of the shows that i’d picked before my trip, but i had to re-upload it as getting ready to post it here, there were just too many changes to the info file (‘mikeos’ shared it on dime the day after the 11:30pm broadcast, ta!).  a lot of great jazz has come out of the uk, both musicians and performances.  sorry to see them leaving the eu.  anyway, a tight performance at maida vale back before any of that nonsense had started.  spillett’s website quotes the guardian, front & center: “straight-ahead, high energy jazz is his line and he does it with aplomb”.  ’nuff said.

  2. Thanks Pete, I really enjoy Spillett’s playing as well as his writing. I have heard him a few times at my local jazz club (Ruislip) and had chats with him, he is very approachable and friendly,

    • lucky you!

      • it’s surprising that it wouldn’t work in italy. the 1fichier website also says that your browser must accept javascript and cookies. still, if you’ve worked it out, then i guess all’s well that ends well.


  3. Thank you so much, but unfortunately 1fichier does not work here anymore! Does anyone else have problems with 1fichier?

    • hmmm. i just tried it from a different browser, not logged-in, and didn’t have any problems. lets see if we get more comments here.

      • 1fichier doesn’t work in Italy. I solved the problem with ProxySite.
        Thank you Pete.
