Ich gratuliere Olli!

Amazing where things get announced.

Oliver Weindling of the Vortex and Babel (pictured above with David Mossman , the father of the old and the new Vortex) has just been awarded an Honorary membership of the Royal Academy of Music. Which means- I think – he will be able to put the letters Hon. RAM after his name (does one go looking for ….an Hon. EWE?)

The announcement has come in taz.de , the online version of the German national paper Die Tageszeitung, just above an ad for cheap Mallorca holidays.

Also auf deutsch:

Am Freitag, den 13., ist wichtige Post für Oliver Weidling gekommen. Stolz hält er den Brief von der Royal Academy of Music in Händen: Kommenden Monat wird er für seine Verdienste um die junge Londoner Jazzszene ausgezeichnet werden.

Joking aside, Oliver’s contribution to the development of the young London jazz scene is indeed second to none.
