Switch Dunmow's Record of the Week was a fabulous new release from Imelda May featuring the magical guitar of Jeff Beck! According to Miles Davis, the history of jazz may be summed up in 4 words - and two of them are the name of the jazz master to whom we paid tribute. And you will not believe our Luvva Cover!
Finally, track two was a fine new slug of Blues by Lenny Henry! He made a documentary for Sky - visiting the homes of his great musical heroes and made a very good album with covers of Blues standards and some new compositions co-wrotten with Jakko Jakszyk (of King Crimson). Can Dudley men sing the blues? Yes they can!
