chronicle: December 2011

As December chilled, trombone poetry flew south, although only getting as far as Bromley South, joining forces with Mick Collins’ Modern Jazz Orchestra at the monthly residency. New works included Leave It, a foundling poem extracted from a Caribbean paper, The Sunday Sun.

Another expedition was undertaken to Mycenae House in deepest Greenwich, to lob poems and several original tunes into the flow of jazz standards at the regular Monday night jam, starring Phil Mead on piano and Dave Silk in a threadbare Santa outfit with a double bass made out of chocolate fingers. Humbug.

Proceeds go to Thinking Development, a partnership of Haitian community groups and a London-based volunteer design team. They are designing a multi-functional and sustainable primary school complex for over 1,200 Haitian girls. The group is also documenting the process in short films so that Haitians can have their voices heard and people everywhere can follow and learn from their work. The design and documentation process is entirely volunteer-run, meaning that all funds go directly into minimal project expenses and the building fund.
