BlueJam Arts has a series of Electronic/Improvised gigs we are putting on at our small Arts Space in Penrith, Cumbria. Short slots are filled by local artists, supporting the main acts. Really good to get a chance to play with Mark Pinto after a gap of about 25 years as well as with BlueJam team member Josh Jackson. Here I play around with a twist on Cassandra Wilson’s amazing song Sankofa, in 5/4 and extended. Listen to the original!
A real buzz for the first gig of my new band, BONES, to be my first live gig since the pandemic.
Geoff Bartholomew – trumpet
Jilly Jarman – church organ
Best reason to write a song! For my new beautiful grand-daughter – welcome!
