I've been playing Mike Westbrook's Uncommon Orchestra - A Bigger Show. They were playing in London last night, a rare occasion, and I was sorely tempted to go. It was only being sensible that stopped me.

It is a great album, a double CD. It matches Ellington and Mingus with a British sensibility, fairs and circuses.

But whilst I love the record, and play it often, playing it all the way through - both CDs - is rare. I've done it, but not often. Which is a shame: it works well as a whole, as well as individual CDs.

Still, I'm playing out now, wondering how it might have been last night, and glad I have the CDs to record the band.
