Congratulations to the one jazz musician named in today’s New Year honours list: an MBE for trumpeter and leader of the long-standing – since 1966! – Apex Jazz Band, George Chambers from Jordanstown, Co. Antrim.
I guess nobody ever got involved in this music with the objective of being alone –apart from this guy, perhaps – so it’s a shame (unless I’ve missed one) to see you without any like-minded company in this morning’s list.
