  1. Comment in Gordon Smart's “Bizarre” column in today's Sun, on the Mercury nomination of Kit Downes Trio:

    “A group of jazz bods I confess I have never heard.”

    Says it all, really! Then again, not sure The Sun is the regular source of insight and music news for most readers of this blog.

    Although by pointing this out, I now reveal I read The Sun this morning!
