My first visit to Camden's Jazz Cafe last night. We watched a cracking set from Christian McBride and his band. Jazz, jazz fusion, whatever... Double and electric bass playing so virtuosic that I spent the night swinging from thoughts of practising harder to just giving up and selling the double bass. The band injected a good natured feel into everything they did (even the drum solos) and got roars of appreciation from the packed house. I feel like I've been spoilt by the great music I've seen this year.
