I'm feeling excited

I'm excited that, after a break, there are new releases on the horizon. Led Bib over the next couple of weeks. Great young crowd at their pre-launch gig at the Vortex, with Tom Arthurs and Richard Fairhurst playing at Steinway Hall next week, and the Fraud album to come. I find it hard to understand why people think it exceptional that there are young audiences coming out to hear bands like these at the Vortex. "Ah, but London's different", they say to me. But is it really? There are potential younger jazz lovers all over the country. So why shouldn't it be possible, with patience and imagination to target them in Derby or Manchester?
