    Nice, little affair there. IMHO, the Jazz adds some class to the joint.

    Great tone by all and a nice recording quality.

    But!......I could not figure out how you were holding the pick! You don't seem to attack the strings in a parallel manner. It seems you have the pick slanted up a little.

    Care to comment?

    At least you're in the right section of the market. If you're going to be appreciated anywhere, it's there.

    Great stuff. I had a market near me that did this for a short while, but I think you were better.

    Great playing, Christian, and it's just the sort of thing jazz needs: three excellent musicians enjoying what they do, in an everyday setting, not playing to other musicians in a near-empty club.

    Well it is Waitrose, so maybe not quite the masses :-)

    Actually I do this one semi regularly and it’s one of the funnest gigs I do. Appreciative audience too.

    It’s more like a Benson grip. I kind of alternate between that and the trad atm. It’s a bit weird.

    Very cool, I’m glad you did have an audience (it becomes clear only at the very end)!

    Sneaky little Oleo quote huh?

    I haven't lived in the UK for 20 years.

    So let me get this straight...

    the cashiers have been automated....

    and the muzak has been replaced with live beboppitybop?

    Anyway, I'll have a couple of kilos of spuds, and a case of Glenmorangie to go. Ta muchly.

    You don’t get this in Morrisons.

    Gbop, I don't know what Morrison's is so I can't really interpret your comment.

    So Christian's "circuit" is supermarket checkouts?

    Has the pay from the redundant automated cashier workers been transferred to the live muzak performers?

    TBH I've got very interested in Lidl and Aldi now I've got a little one.... The shopping you can get for £20! Such wonders. Good veg.

    Waitrose for your bits, obv.

    Anyway, this is specifically a gig at the King's Cross uber branch, it's all very odd, but we enjoy the incongruity.

    TBH, that's the most mainstream jazz I've played in there. Usually it's ECM style soundscapes and Radiohead covers.

    Nice! Can't imagine a gig like that happening in NYC, unless maybe if you play salsa...

    But what's up with these glasses on da table, don't tell me it's just water? At least a bottle of Merlot would make more sense there? lol

    Looked it up, I think it’s been converted from a historic train shed? Interesting place.

    Yeah the whole area is pretty cool as far as London developments go.

    In the summer they have gigs outside in the railway arch. When we played they had some sort of art instillation with LASERs.

    Nice, a big ole refractor. TBH I tend to think of those more as planetary telescopes and big ass light buckets for deep sky-but that looks like a beautiful instrument and fantastic results with the horsehead. Maybe just right for some smaller deep sky objects like PNe?

    I used to have an 8” (200mm roughly) reflector that I had gifted to me years ago, but never had much chance to use it. So I recently donated it to a local astronomy club and they seem to be getting good use out of it. Was collecting dust for 20 years....

    Maybe one day I’ll get one for my daughter to look at Saturn and the moon and so on. Everyone should have a chance to do that in their lives!

    And great job on the astrophotography! Where are you based? Out in the country somewhere?
