well summer’s over, and we’ve probably all missed the brecon jazz yet again, haven’t we? but here’s a nice set by ruby braff from around 23 years ago to make up for it. meanwhile, around here, i’m off to my first show at arthur’s since covid started. keen excitement all around, naturally. apparently they’ve (had to) remodel a bit, so also looking forward to see what it looks like now.
