LondonJazz: “….British players, take note.”

Sebastian Scotney of LondonJazz blog is as cool, calm and jazz-savvy as can be. So when something gets up his nose, it’s worth paying attention.

This has annoyed me. Today’s Financial Times review of Italian pianist Kekko Fornarelli ends with the following paragraph, a generalized cheap Parthian shot directed at British jazz musicians.
