Schembri Ah Um

After an evening listening to Vince Jones and Katie Noonan, jazz naysayer Jim Schembri is now a jazz yaysayer. Sort of.
The real revelation of the evening, though, was how relaxing and soothing it all was. This was quite contrary to my view that jazz was like listening to fingernails down a blackboard.
He says that like fingernails down a blackboard are a bad thing.

Schembri is a goose. It's like the time he slagged off at bloggers and then, um, started a blog.

More than a goose. But it doesn't surprise me, Jones and Noonan would swing anyone.

YOu know, I had just about accepted his peculiar brand of film reviewing. Why on earth would they let him talk about something else he doesn't really like, I wonder?

Love that post subject.

Ah, relaxing and soothing, just like classical music. He sounds like the narrator in Graeme Leak and Frankie Lee's "I Love Jazz": "And then the singer came on, he was fantastic, great suit."
