So What!!!
Where is the recognition for British Jazz (or jazz of any description) in
the jubilee revellries? Maybe jazzers are still a subculture. With the
amount of money spent on last nights Classical concert (which was very good)
and the amouut to be frittered on Monday night, I would have thought that a
few crumbs could have been sprinkled in the direction of some jazz events.
