      I'm not that into hip-hop but know some of you are and may be familiar with this lot - and knowing Ben (aka *Mantis) the words will be cooking

        We're not affiliated with this, but it does look like he'll also be performing in London (Ronnie Scott's) in April:

            Excellent - in that case we should round up a crew and all go for a drink afterwards if you're still about?

                    Thoroughly enjoyed the talk - he was a charming and cheeky chap with some great stories - could have listened for another hour!

                    The concert was wonderful - just to hear him run through some of the classics and a few more unusual selections was enough - he's still a fantastic performer (must be around 80?) - but it was fascinating to experience the relatively minimal arrangements for piano and harp. I think it worked well myself, though perhaps if people had been hoping for something more like a chamber piece (with strings etc) or pure jazz, they might have been disappointed. The audience was not full - around 3/4 I guess, which was a pity, but everyone was delighted and transfixed throughout.

                    He played 2 longer variations on the 'Go Between' and 'Thomas Crown Affair', several themes from French (Cléo de 5 à 7, The Umbrellas..., ...Rochefort) and and US films - including Magic Garden of Stanley Sweetheart and Orson's Theme (from 'F For Fake', Orson Well's last film). Would have loved a bit of 'Une femme est une femme', 'Le Mans' and 'Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo?' instead of the 'Yentl'... but all in all a good diverse selection.
