TADOW by Masego
WILL YOU by Hazel O’Connor

ONE STEP BEYOND.. Madness
and the SET 2 was a big and exciting jam on original House dance and reggae tracks which sounded fantastic live and in the moment.
My favourite saxtrack on the album is Summon The Fire with Shabaka Hutchings playing some ace sax lines.
Well worth watching the Amazon Prime film ‘The Case Of The Three-Sided Dream’ about Raashan Roland Kirk
Adam Kahan’s amazing documentary about the blind jazz saxman is well worthy a view.
It focuses on the beauty and invention of his own unique sound and his radical ideas.
It didn’t feature those tracks that have made his very own Blowout Sax book on him.
My personal favourite is his composition Black and Crazy Blues
2.I Love You I Do
3. I Love You Porgy.from Blowout Solo Sax..
5. Never Can Say Goodbye.
6. Make It With You.
7. Old Rugged Cross.
8. Fall Out
9. Blue Lol
So many ace tracks
Black And Crazy Blues footnote
This baggy wayward laboured aching blues has the typical touch of a Roland Kirk where as the tune goes who knows where. The theme is pronounced and I love the rawness of his sound. He sums up his own tune here: ‘When I die I want them to play the Black And Crazy Blues, I want to be cremated, put in a bag of pot and I want beautiful people to smoke me and hope they got something out of it.’
As the Archers saw The Pirates win a thriller 3-2 v Bradford City with a late late winner from ace scorer Johnson Clarke Harris!
Blowout Sax London is happening and students are being taught in the supergroovy Hampstead Jazz Club venue in lovely Hampstead.
As one beginner described her first lesson ‘I loved our session,you are a brilliant,inspiring teacher with such energy..’
The pub The Duke Of Hamilton upstairs is very natty too of decor vibe and food.
