  1. Having missed the excitement around this release, thoroughly enjoyed this delicious, bite-sized preview.
    I didn't think Liane could better Up and Down but very much sounds as if she's done it. Brava!

    Podcast is great too - LondonJazz still keeping it fresh.

  2. Nice to hear that Ross Dines is refurbishing Pizza Express for Liane's upcoming gig. Great musicians - including Liane (whom we saw many years ago at the old Ronnie's) but also our other friends - deserve great settings in which to make music.
