unfortunately, i’ve missed downloading a couple of ellen christi shows, but that’s ok, i’m sure i can find some of her cd’s for sale.  though, with the range of styles she can (and, apparently, will) sing, it remains to be seen if i will have chosen well in my purchase.  i find this very hard to describe, but there’s a sample as alway.  if you like this, a venue called roulette, in brooklyn, has a recording of mark hennen, ellen christi & drummer jackson krall show on 6-mar-1985 available on their website.

a week or two ago, i was again at the workmans club down on wellington quay, for a dublin jazz co-op show:  thomas schuttenhelm & sam perkin.  it sounded interesting & was but i wasn’t sure i’d enjoy it.  but enjoy it, i did!  it was super!  and music to make you think and to be thought about.  i had a nice chat with thomas schuttenhelm afterwards, a very interesting fellow (no surprise that!).  check ’em both out!
