I suspect that - for some - this thread ran its course, by which I mean that some people thought it a great idea to kill this discussion. Well, you did, and you know who you are.... Edited by member, 18th Feb 2016 11:32 pm

No, it wasn`t you Mike. However, I might include myself among the assassins. I should have realized that the age spread between me at eighteen and most of the leading performer lights (or even the serious fans) on the Coventry jazz scene at the time could not possibly have narrowed over the years. The gap then was ten to twenty years. It came as a pleasant surprise to learn that there were folks still around who played back then; indeed, who still were playing. The problem from the outset was the direction I determined for the thread, a day-by-day (Monday through Sunday) reconstruction of the places jazz was played in Coventry. I believe I started well with words on the Tierra Buena Jazz Band, a band that played every Monday evening at the Pilot in Radford, but it was downhill all the way from there as I knew I had no idea what bands played where Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I fell into my jazz journalism pattern, fighting internecine battles within the music, battles that had been won or lost many years earlier, battles that were no longer of moment. So it fell apart, as I twisted in my misery, a misery out of which nobody would put me. So, no, Mike, you did not put me out of my misery, but I would have thought less of you had you bothered to do so, mon ami!
