    @WallyBazoum: Thanks for those other songs, I'll build those in (once I've quit debugging a LastFM journal prob' that's annoying me, ATM). Any crit' / ideas on running order?

    @caroleharvey: If you're happy, I'm happy :) I simply included all the vid's, of the gig, that I found. The 'chat on the origins of ' section seems a little further along the [i]audience with[/i] approach I remember from the Jazz Cafe & reminiscent of, the late, Dizzy Gillespie's performance style (as seen twice at Ronnie Scott's). Yes, knowing that the orig' spelling was , it's interesting to hear that started life as a neologistic compound of "jism" & "ass" - However, when an audience is sized above a few hundred, interaction fades toward the rhetorical & I start to think "Pay for your own soapbox, Matey!". xx
