Andy Williamson’s hour on the fourth plinth

Go to this video link to view saxophonist and all-round nice guy Andy Williamson from the Brass Volcanoes….pouring himself a drink….playing a gentle warm-up tune…. talking about kidney transplants (he’s a beneficiary)…playing a few blues choruses after [28:00], showing off his kidney transplant scar, taking a call from his mum, playing a soulful Round Midnight [38:30]….talking about falling in love with the saxophone as a youngster in Bishop Auckland through listening to Plas Johnson’s playing of Pink PantherItalic [42:00].

You see the evening closing in over Trafalgar Square to the strains of Blue Monk . Then, for the last ten minutes, a bit of economics, castigating the relentless pursuit of economic growth…talking with emotion about the world his first child will be born into, as he watches the traffic fume past….

It’s a professionally produced video, with proper sound…..Nice one, Andy!
