PS: I'm wondering...do you also book foreign bands for concerts? We have some Belgian friends here who are very ready to come and play! ; ) Excellent musicians, Great voice, 3 and 1/2 octaves...can count ; ))) Holland likes them, Sweden too... They are performing in Nov. at "Crossing Border Den Haag"! Maybe England would like them as well...quite a unique sound...good set up too!
Check out this wonderful NEW Belgian band:

Regarding Jochen Eisentraut, Hi! I'm obviously biased 'cos I suggested that Musti booked them, but I thought the Jochen Eisentraut Trio were excellent. When I first saw them at the National Eisteddfod in Bala I thoroughly enjoyed their music. I had heard Jochen a number of times before,but was very heartened by the fact that the bass player(Ben) was only 18,and the drummer(Joe) 20. It's always a concern to me that there are so few young jazz musicians around. By the way,full marks to Musti for playing bongos with them to bring them out of their shell:once they got going they grew in fluidity,and their second set was brilliant. It's a long way to come from north west Wales,but if they're game,I say book 'em again!! All the Best, Jules Saney

Good Morning, I don't go to the Trumpet that often but when we have a girls night out (we are all in our 60's) that's where we go, it's a nice atmosphere in there and it's nice to be able to go somewhere where you feel comfortable, we particularly like Style Unlimited, they play a nice selection of music. It's nice to receive your mails telling us of who's playing there as well. Regards Irene Oxley

HEY GUYS, EVERYONE I KNOW, ADORED JOE PASSALAQUA AKA JOE 'PASS', EVEN, TO THIS DAY. HE WAS THE EPITOME OF, MR. 'NICE-GUY-SUPREME! HIS TASTEFUL GUITARISTIC PHENOMENA, UN-MATCHED! HIS CHURCH-SERVICES MEMORIAL, WAS WELL ATTENDED, BY FANS FROM ALL-OVER AMERICA ...AT Catholic Church ST. MEL(?), on Ventura Blvd, near Canoga Ave(?)

RIP-JOE! A guitar solo with Joe Pass. This is his version of "Satin Doll," a jazz standard written by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, written in 1953.

Hi there, Just to let you know that I've created a tribute site for the Trumpet, via my Radio webpage. I have fond memories of the Trumpet, been going there since 1986, mainly when I meet up with other Slade fans, when we had Slade fan club meetings etc. You will have noticed that i have used some of your own wording, but happy to remove it, if your not happy with it. I'm quite happy to add my own text, I just wanted to see how it would look, as I said, its only a tribute site and not the official one. Here's the link to the pages I created. http://www.radiobacktrack.co.uk/radiobacktrack/Trumpet_page1.html Many thanks Dave

Hi there, I visited The Trumpet on Tuesday evening this week and had, as ever, a wonderful time. I write a blog about local arts and culture and just had to write a review about The Trumpet. I just hope the good word is spread to more people - it's such a hidden gem. Here is the link to the article, if you're interested: http://cultureofthrift.wordpress.com/2011/08/31/free-jazz-the-trumpet-bilston/ Thanks again for a lovely evening, Emma

Dear "Admin" Please pass on our thanks to Musti for another memorable night at "The Trumpet" on Saturday 21'st Jan. I was the chap with the beard who spoke a lot of French with him! Wife & I had travelled from Milton Keynes, and my family from Rugby...all by train + Metro. A long way but well worth it, to visit what must be a unique institution in the Midlands (and elsewhere). Very sadly, it's a rather long way to visit regularly, but we try to make it each January; this occasion was my "birthday treat" on becoming 70. We'll make a special effort to get there again, when the weather is a little friendlier! I've always been a fan of Holdens beer too; unavailable where we live. So a very special treat to visit. May "The Trumpet" continue to blow for a long time! Best 'jazzy' wishes,

 Jim & family
