1st October 2016- The joy of playing with musicians for the first time – Claudio Perelli - So, Saturday the 1st October 2016 , I put together “Jude Lindy’s Hot 5” for a gig at Spirit de Milan. Thanks to an excellent recommendation from Mauro Porro I contacted Claudio Perelli, a polystrumentalist reed player. Little did I know that I was going to be playing with someone who many consider to be […]

27th August 2016- Policoro in Swing – the joy of meeting and playing with new musicians - It’s just wonderful to meet and play with new musicians.

28th July 2016- A little bit of New Orleans in Milan….. Classic Jazz brings people together - Our aperitif gig at Panificio Danelli in the Lambrate area of Milan in July really brought home a few things to me. I realised all over again the magic of Classic Jazz – it makes people come out of their houses, get involved, dance and sing. Perhaps classic jazz is really at its most powerful […]
28th-29th June 2016 – thoughts on…. Ascona Jazz Festival, Switzerland - It was my first time to visit Ascona Jazz Festival. To be honest the warnings I had received about speed traps, cameras etc., left me arriving a little tired and wary. A magical, though expensive location, where 1 CH Franc is presumed to be equal to 1 Euro, we heard Classic Jazz in the distance […]
24th May 2016 – The spontaneity and joy of Lindy Hop & Swing at 37,000 feet leads to worldwide coverage - I can’t express how delighted and proud I was when I saw the video of Lindyhopper friends from Milan, Florence and elsewhere as they did an impromptu Shim Sham at 37,000 feet, returning to Italy from the “Harlem” festival in Lithuania…. The magic is in the simplicity and honesty of the action…. Moments like this […]

I feel what Giorgio has to say […]

18th March 2016 – The Hot Sugar Band at Swing Train Festival, Turin - There’s something really special about the musicians in the Hot Sugar Band from Paris.
