West End Blues Day

It’s here once again, the annual Holy Day (and holiday if you wish!) in honour of a recording that words like ‘masterpiece’ were made for.

On June 28, 2014, I will be heading to the 24th Annual America’s Classic Jazz Festival in Lacey, near Olympia, Washington. I’ll be mostly stalking the Wolverines from Boston and New England


and the West End Jazz Band from Chicago


and all day, my heart will be carrying the echoes of what happened on June 28, 1928, in Chicago – click on the record to play!
