    Whilst not denying the accuracy of this statement, it does mean that 1990 was in the '80s, 1980 was in the '70s. and 1970 was in the '60s (which some say it was anyway).

    "The reason why the numbering was proposed to start from 1 instead of 0 was because the mediæval Europeans had not yet received the concept of zero from the Indians. These days, of course, the concept of zero is widespread. So widespread, that the idea of numbering the years from 1 is getting to seem less and less natural..."

    This trio is appearing at the Purcell on the 21st; I have been cogitating on going, but it is £25/15, and the Andy Sheppard of now is not the fire-in-belly player whoc excited me 25 years ago. This outfit, Seb Rochford's presence notwithstanding, reflects that, by reputable accounts.

    I paid £19.50 - that is for Trio Libero first set and Courtney Pine: Europa, second set - not sure if that's value or not!

    Courtney Pine's Europa were very good when I saw them in the summer, although one or two of the solos suffered slightly from "longer, faster, higher equals better" syndrome. It looks like a good double bill. I'd be fascinated to hear Seb Rochford playing in a relatively conventional acoustic jazz format: I've generally liked his drumming but not the bands he was in.

    Oh, and Odean's List is indeed excellent.

    Byas'd-0:

    If and when you listen to the ECM Trio Libero disc...well, there are times when you might think out loud:

    I heard Courtney Pine on Friday, when he was performing a lunchtime concert and masterclass at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He was playing soprano throughout and said that he intended to concentrate on it for the next couple of years. So the double bill with Andy Sheppard might be one of the last chances to hear Europa in their current form, as it's a product of Pine's time specialising in bass clarinet.

    Tommy Smith sat in for one tune during Friday's concert: wonder if there's any chance of Pine and Sheppard sharing the stage at some point in London?
