    ll Gather Lilacs Ray Noble The Very Thought Of You and Cherokee Noel Gay All The Kings Horses and Albert Ketelby In A Persian Market My first number surprised a few people as it was Jule Styne s Just In Time Mr Styne who also wrote Don t Rain On My Parade and Diamonds Are A Girl s Best Friend was actually born in London We lost him to the Yanks when he was just 8 years old after his family emigrated to the land of opportunity but he still counts Another sometimes forgotten gem Spread A Little Happiness was scribed in 1929 by a man in the throes of 104 fever F not C Mr Vivian Ellis Songmeisters of the 60 s were also well represented Lennon and McCartney were Here There And Everywhere Les Reid and Gordon Mills proved It s Not Unusual Anthony Newley and Leslie Briscusse were on the whole Feeling Good but to Lionel Bart Fings Ain t What They Used To Be when it comes to the delicate question Where Is Love These shows are put together by marrying new arrangements and old stock arrangements from the BBC vaults Some of these charts haven t been heard or played for 1000 s of years so when producer Bob summons them up from the great abyss I always feel a slight sense of trepidation This particular arrangement of Where Is Love could easily have been in Margot and Jerry s record collection circa 1975 I just wish I d had the appropriate disco pant suit to do the performance justice Great fun This was followed by a great new arrangement of Annie Lennox s Why a joyous rendition of Van Morrison s Bright Side of the Road and rounded off with a good old blast

    we wanted to get started the morning after watching the film Five juices per day and a meal of only fruit and vegetables plus water and herbal tea Day 1 was surprisingly easy even though we missed 2 of the 5 juices we had an avocado salad for dinner and went to bed feeling quite smug This is going to be a breeze The first two juices of Day 2 carrot apple ginger and kale cucumber celery apple lemon ginger were really great but by lunch time we re both missing coffee and also finding it difficult to fit any more liquid in on top of the 2 ½ pints we d already drunk Another 1 ½ pints of Gazpacho pulp for lunch same quantity of more green juice mid afternoon and ditto of pre dinner red juice sweet potato carrot red pepper beetroot apples orange I must stress all the juices are delicious but by now I m not feeling so good and I ve got headache We manage the rest of yesterday s salad with some roast aubergine but minutes into episode 2 of Transparent I have a full blown migraine and have to go to bed Day 3 missing coffee so much it s making us quite cross although really enjoying the first 2 juices of the day My migraine is still banging on and at several points during the course of Thursday I almost give up and eat a biscuit but decide I ve come this far We couldn t face the Gazpacho pulp at lunch so replace it with water It s difficult to stomach pints and pints of fluid when you re not used to it unless it s beer of course so drink as much of the afternoon and pre dinner as possible

    in question is actually an independent supermarket called hiSbe The brain child of sisters Ruth and Amy Anslow hiSbe stands for How it SHOULD be They sell a large range of fresh food and groceries all the stuff you need for a weekly shop but wherever possible the goods come from local suppliers and all concerned want to produce healthy sustainable products and at a price that everyone can afford Before you all rush out the door there s only one branch at the moment and that s in Brighton but the Anslows of hiSbe have big ideas so remember the name Muddy is in serious cleaning and decoration mode anything standing still is either polished or sprayed silver or sometimes both Alan the dog and I are making an effort to keep moving This week we start our annual Christmas tour The Festive Fiesta First stop of the sleigh London then Exeter Maidstone Birmingham Bristol then we head north for the remaining two shows A few weeks ago we threw down the gauntlet to the talented folk of Yorkshire and surrounding areas to apply to take part in our Massive Festive Fiesta at The Royal Hall in Harrogate on Thursday 18th December after many hours of difficult decision making we are ready to announce the first two successful acts exciting saxophonist Emma Johnson and accordionist extraordinaire Thomas Hardaker This will be a real feel good fest one which we re hoping to make an annual event in Harrogate Musical director Grant is leaving us after the tour to move back to Australia and we want to give him the best send off possible so the Christmas dates have added good cheer Our last concert of the year takes place in the Settle s beautiful Victoria Hall pianist Grant Windsor

    way in December If I ate and drank like I do between 24th Dec 1st January from mid November I would be in a very sorry state but since Summer it seems the supermarket s have been out in force trying to tempt us by whatever means they think fair Tempting offers on sweet tins the size of space hoppers not to mention discount booze A gallon of Baileys for 12 I have to admit I am rather partial to the old Irish cream having mocked it for years I was finding it worryingly moreish that is until I worked out that my little glassful was equivalent to nearly 300 calories If I had a daily dose of that from November 16th till New Year s Day that would add an extra 13 800 calories to my waist 4 Quality Street sweets per day 7 222 The average mince pie contains 289 calories Over the new 46 day festive marathon this equates to 13 294 Some of these luxury buttery biscuits contain nearly 100 calories each and I can never have just one so throw in a couple of them a day and that s 9 200 calories A handful of nuts 243 calories multiply that by 46 equals 11 178 I read that on average we consume 7 000 calories each on Christmas Day alone that s 3 1 2 times the recommended intake for women A full turkey dinner with trimmings is equivalent to 1450 calories add another 1174 cals for pudding custard and brandy butter It s bonkers when you see it written down not to mention obscene when there are so many people in the world without enough food to survive but the truth is many of us over indulge but whereas in years gone by

    your lovely messages heartfelt thanks also to MD Guy Barker Bandleader Winston Rollins and all our musicians and singers For this year s concert I d opted to take control of my eyeballs and learn the entire script rather than use an autocue I had a bright pink camera to look into every now and then which stood out loud and proud in the empty hall during rehearsal but which became somewhat trickier to spot amidst 6000 excited punters The weird thing about being on stage at The Royal Albert Hall is that after your initial fears subside it feels like both you the performer and the audience are sitting together in a cozy room having a natter over a glass of wine It s difficult to describe but I can understand why it is such a loved venue there s magic in them there walls Standing back stage with our two bandleaders Guy Barker and Winston Rollins I could see out of the corner of my eye a monitor and on it two TV presenters talking about our prom I m not sure where they were in the hall but the back drop was stunning our two glorious big band on stage ready to go When the presenters suddenly to face said bands I grabbed Guy and Winston and squeaked Look they ve turned round to see us and with that the door of the bull run opened and the noise of 6000 expectant swing fans rushed in By having two bands on stage you got a real feel of the excitement these roaring machines could generate and of course much as we said from the start this isn t a competition a marvellous friendly rivalry crept in from the start and very soon into the concert it was

    created a pop up big band You never know how workshops are going to go how responsive the attendees will be I ll remember this one for years to come Players and singers aged 16 24 came from all over the country all eager to get stuck in We chose four of the charts we ll be using at our actual prom We d sent the music out ahead of time for three of them but kept back the fourth Charlie Barnet s Skyliner as a nice surprise Although I m not sure the students thought the same as on arrival that was what we aske them to sight read They were a terrific bunch of players and I definitely heard some potential stars of the future We included a Benny Goodman tune and to my delight one of the alto players brought his clarinet and nailed the solo beautifully Whilst the different instrument groups went off to be mentored I was left with the rhythm section and five singers all of whom were great packed with wonderful raw talent and fresh ideas Guy and I had specifically chosen older songs that the youngsters might not necessarily know We talked about how the original singers had tackled the same material and with that in mind we played around with the timing and phrasing to find new ways of singing the songs All the vocalists came from very different singing backgrounds from gospel opera soul jazz and pop and it great to hear the different identities emerging whilst still retaining their own originality After a quick cup of coffee and thoughts of a carrot cake slice we all reconvened and spent the remaining time playing and singing together What a blast A certain level of competence is required to go through

    of the busiest youth jazz ensembles around throw in a bag of hot mini doughnuts and you ll fair idea of my mood Is there anything better than listening to great live music outdoors Yes listening to great live music outdoors with hot mini doughnuts Launched in 2005 the festival has gone from strength to strength celebrating its 10 th birthday this year with 12 days of events Folk singer and multi instrumentalist Seth Lakeman and pioneers of the Acid Jazz scene The Brand New Heavies were still to come but we had to get back on the road reaching Glastonbury just before pumpkin o clock I try to refrain from whinging about the sheer amount of roadworks currently blocking our roads I appreciate they are more than necessary it just feels sometimes like the Highways Agency plan every disruption around our schedule Sunday evening for example we left Radio 2 just after 11pm expecting to be home just before 2am not sat stationary on the M3 for nearly an hour to be then moved off the flippin thing and through the slowest diversion in history finally arriving home around 3 30am with the early brightening of dawn This week we re playing closer to home at the beautiful Peto Gardens of Iford Manor in Wiltshire It s a wonderful festival even if the weather isn t always clement People come from near and far and the quality of picnic apparel is top notch as is the food said picnic ers bring There s many a smoked salmon sarnie and homemade cakes to die for not that I go round begging for food you understand it s more an observation That said wherever you play during the picnic festivals of Summer no matter how posh there s always a whiff
