So I will hammer on…I am a ‘sucker’ for rags, for those magazines that tend to say things that quite fashionably high end spreads will not succumb to.  We all know those rags, sometimes we have to buy them in benign ways, shying away from our dear ones lest we get caught up giving in to cheap gossip or for fear of being mistaken as timewasters.  In mouthy fashion, I read a not so glossy spread that ... (more)

Tim shared the majesty and versatility of the Tenor Sax on several pieces of music.

Likewise, Asaf and Gwilyn emerged with on that same page with one another and Tim. A conduit that was admiringly effective and tight. Gwilym playing in an absolutely amazing fashion totally engulfed in a continous sea of gorgeous progressions and statements of his own making. He often played half seated, leaning over the piano as if speaking words of love through his finger tips to the keys.

...glory Hallelujah", sneaking in numerous Jazz licks that were all Monty's own articulating the very core of music.

An almost sacred experience was had when Monty and the ensemble played Billy Taylor and Dick Dallas' "I Wish I knew How It Would Feel to be Free once performed in a riveting fashion by the stellar Nina Simone.

Monty put his own imprint on the treasure with chord progressions ans soloing that was priceless.

By D. E. Carson, published on May 25, 2009

On the corner of Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Boulevard stands a large imposing edifice housing an Italian restaurant named Trastevere Ristorante Italiano. The place is decorated in a fashion befitting a good old, authentic Italian restaurant. It has the plaster walls complete with cracks to give it that “Old World” feel. Included in the restaurant is an al fresco dining area and large front windows that fold open like old fire station doors that open the place up to make for a great dining experience.The food is prepared as one might expect. I had a standby: pepperoni... (more)

Money Divorced From Style

By Chedvah, published on Apr 20, 2009

...believing they are necessary buys. While the money grabbers are being lured by mind games of the high street and internet, some of the wealthy are strutting and showing off what their money can buy-from the most deploring florals mingled with urban extrasto chic outfits. At this point in time-fashionswise-it is very challenging not to covet thy neighbour's wardrobe.
