I know It’s been a while since my last post so , but I never liked that tune …bom bom…

I’ve spent the last week or so touring Germany with Chris Jagger & Atcha ,
We started in Bavaria then played gigs going into the area that was the old GDR , it’s interesting to see how Germany is changing, we finished up at a buzzing Zydeco festival in Holland.

Very Sad news of the death of my good friend Jim Pitts, I will miss Jim’s company and Music.

This weekend I go to Austrailia for a couple of weeks with Chris & Atcha for a few shows,
The new c.d. Is nearly finished and is sounding very good.

On my return I shall be playing on the 3rd June in a band on the House’O Lords terrace as HM the Queen sails past.

Three Friends autumn tour of Canada and USA is looking very good and we shall also be playing a show in Tel Aviv.
TF also have shows offered in Sweden and Italy this Summer.

Also in June I looking forward to playing at Beckenham and Bexley jazz Clubs.

Thanks for looking

Best Malc

T.MONK’S ADVICE (1960)

18 Mar

JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT A DRUMMER, DOESN’T MEAN YOU DON’T HAVE TO KEEP TIME.

PAT YOUR FOOT & SING THE MELODY IN YOUR HEAD, WHEN YOU PLAY.

STOP PLAYING ALL THOSE WEIRD NOTES (THAT BULLSHIT), PLAY THE MELODY!

MAKE THE DRUMMER SOUND GOOD.

T.S.M. A good Band Leader.

The first BBC network radio play two nights ago Three Friends ( the band) courtesy of Steve Davis whist he was hosting the Jarvis Cocker Show BBC 6 , the band sounded good to me.

I’ve had a few interesting sessions recently ….a couple of tracks for Guitarist Chris Spedding on his forth coming latest solo record and also for a Guitarist of a different ilk my old mate Brian James.

The Glastonbury for Chris Jagger was sadly sparsely attended, I think everyone was in the next field watching Paul Simon
Gary Green and I are off to play with Orchestra Contemporanea in Italy this month.

I’m writing this from a Hotel in Harwich UK, nice concert last night at the Electric Cinema Theatre Harwich with Spike Heatley Trio with Alan Barnes, Alan is a dazzling player, great wit and musician. coming Sunday at the Bulls Head , Barnes with Spike’s Trio with Art Theman.
Then on Monday to France for a week to record another Chris jagger c.d. at his brothers House.
On 1.5.2011  Three Friends played Gouveia Art Rock Festival all went very well here are two
