The GJCF spilled into a fourth day, with just a handful of gigs in pubs, a jam session led by trombonist Paul Dunlea in the Crane Lane Theatre and the final day of social dancing at the Cork Jazz Ball in the Camden Palace Hotel. The honor of closing the GCJF fell to Scottish indie-rock band Primal Scream, a band which has been together as long as Guinness has been sponsoring the GCJF. There were no reports of alternative rock versions of Mingus or Duke Ellington tunes but a packed arena proved that that there's plenty of elbow room for diversity at the GCJF. Roll on GCJF 2014!
My father was playing jazz and and free jazz during the '80s in Paris.
My first cassettes when I was a kid were a compilation of Duke Ellington's orchestra on side A and Count Basie's orchestra on Side B.
My first CD was a live performance of Thelonious Monk in Europe in 60's.
I saw Miles live in 1991 in Nyon Paleo Festival.
