Rachel Musson and I are having a great time in Germany! The gig in Bochum last night was lovely, looking forward to Münster tonight!
Münster—yeah! Good times with Rachel Musson on the trip. Off to Essen later...

New Ramble: Germany update
Fantastic gig last night with Rachel Musson, Carl Ludwig Hübsch and Gunda Gottschalk! Köln today!
And if anyone is missing a Corey Mwamba/Rachel Musson music fix...
Lovely review of the gig [in German] in Essen with Rachel Musson!
Total blast with Rachel Musson in Köln last night. Today: Düsseldorf!
Düsseldorf with Rachel Musson, Paul Lytton and Nicola Hein was lovely! Off to Bielefeld today.
Deliriously happy at having a kettle and a bath in the hotel room. Bielefeld was a fantastic night; Rachel Musson sounded amazing, as did Albrecht Maurer and Simon Camatta. Now to Hagen for the last trip!
Something to keep your day going: Shabaka Hutchings' selection of tunes
That satisfying feeling of completing something in PHP that provides something very mundane.
Far too much of my face in this; but still, a nice video of me and Rachel Musson!
In other news, I've been totally b-slapped by Facebook's API today.
Got around to updating some of the projects I'm involved in: take a look!
I am not a great fan of cinema. I am also not a fan of awards. So please, forgive my lack of Oscars coverage.

Learning a lovely new song from Nick Malcolm that's actually in simple duple meter! Maybe it does get easier...
...but translating piano parts to vibes is a delicate process. Balancing of colour.
Possibly worth pointing out that a vibraphone is not a piano. It's superficial to compare them "because the layout's the same".
Of course, I have seen one or two journalists do this; they are very much on my naughty step.
If you're interested, I talk a bit about my playing technique in the following Ramble.
New Ramble: Use.
New Ramble: Family Album update
The more astute among you will notice the connection with my last Ramble and the one preceding.
Anyway, enough writing! Time to pack things and get ready for Nick Malcolm's lovely music.
