Trombonicle 27

OldhamThe New Year brings new schemes – books, films – which mustn’t become mirages, like most New Year schemes. Let’s see.

Meanwhile, a trip to the old town beckons: Oldham, whose insignia has shifted somewhat over the years.

Sapere aude, they used to say – dare to be wise.

Now, of course, they have chosen to symbolize oneness with a large zero.

newoldhamGiven that next week’s visit is a return trip for Swinging at the Cotton Club, the audience figure should exceed either of those numbers.

One day, some kind of Oldham dialect poem ought to emerge.

Meanwhile (again), a healthy dose of early Ellington for January, after a sudden outburst in Rotherhithe.
