CONGRATULATIONS to the organisers of this year’s Guinness Cork Jazz Festival; they have planned it for a weekend — October 27-30 — when the 10-day weather forecasts promise mere clouds and only a moderate risk of rain... the weather, then, as normal in our part of the world.

DRUMMER extraordinaire Louie Bellson passed away on February 14 last. In the genre of big band music, he was the last of the “big three” drummers and his gig with the great Duke Ellington Orchestra is memorable, particularly his electrifying solo on Skin Deep (his own composition).
