One For The Diary...

Out to all Dorset, Hampshire and South-West crew: an absolutely astonishing gig at Poole's Lighthouse, on November 9th and 10th - on the Friday evening, a duo gig by free saxophonist Jan Kopinski and drummer Steve Harris, followed by Poole's own Safehouse Collective providing a live soundtrack to films by students from the Arts Institute; on the Saturday, two free (in both the monetary and musical sense) improvisation workshops hosted by Steve Harris and Chris Burns, followed in the evening by sets from cellist and electronics player Mark Wastell with trumpeter Matt Davis, drummer/percussionist Steve Noble (who has recently put out an excellent disk with Alan Wilkinson and John Edwards on Bo'Weavil Recordings) with guitarist Alex Ward, and the king and queen of British improv, Keith and Julie Tippett (look at those muttonchops on Keith!) on piano and voice.

It's £5 and £10 for each night respectively, and will no doubt be well worth the price. This is undoubtedly the best thing the Lighthouse has put on, or will put on, all year (certainly a damn sight better than The Imagined Village or Gilbert O'Sullivan.)
