here’s one from dublin! this was recorded over 5 days, two songs at a time, by ‘johnos’, which took some real dedication. unfortunately, there’s no more live jazz on irish radio since the blue of the night. maybe the odd piece, coincidentally. and there’s often a live song or two on arena (though seldom jazz) — that’s a fantastic arts program and fortunately falls right when we happen to be listening to the radio. swings & roundabouts, i guess.
