    My apologies for being so tardy in replying, Resurgam. Yes. I do know of Joe Webb but not too well. You have reminded me what a talented jazz pianist he is. A particular favourite of mine is "Errolesque", some super jazz piano playing by Joe with this rendering: Guess this is being performed by the "Joe Webb Trio"?

    Just been to India on a business trip and watched a couple of nice films on the flight. Firstly, Martin Scorsese's latest masterpiece, Killers of the Flower Moon. Despite its length, the film magically holds your interest as the shocking story unfolds. Great performances from Di Caprio and Lily Gladstone and a very atmospheric score that were surely worthy of an Oscar or two. Then I watched the Ken Loach film The Old Oak where Dave Turner stole the show as TJ, a landlord caught between Syrian refugees and racist bigots. At times funny, at times sad and depressing it is nevertheless a very uplifting film,

    i think that’s ken loach’s last film , he will be greatly missed imo, a film creator who is held in high esteem throughout europe , but strangely is marginalised in the uk ...........funny old world

    Sad to hear that the singer/songwriter, Françoise Hardy, had died at the age of 80.

    One of my favourites from her that she composed and sang was a very simple but still beautiful song, "Tous les garcons", which must have been one of her first compositions/renderings? Hope you can find it, it's the second one down on the YT site below (3.5 m. views):

    Have you seen his son, Jim’s film, Oranges and Sunshine?
    A tremendous expose of the cruelty and shame on young, unwanted or illegitimate children by the English and Australian governments.
    Strange that the British media have shied away from it.

    Hi there. Yes, the film will shock and surprise you that the UK government was still shipping children to Australia up to 1996.
