OK OK a few weeks between drinks but I've been busy. On tour three days of every week for the past three weeks and a wee one in the house!

This weeks show more than makes up for it. I will let the play list do the talking but you can see there are some great new releases out. Noteworthy is the new album out on Tru Thoughts but The Bamboo's singer Kylie Auldist, new album from Sleepwalker on Jazzmin Records. Brand spanking new release on our own label, Straightup Recordings, from Keith Caden titled For I Know That You Lie and a heap more!!!

So as mentioned been touring with Russ Dewbury. Straightup has opened a monthly night in Brisbane the third Friday of each month called Jazz Lounge. It is in Fortitude Valley at one very cool place called Alhambra Lounge.

And now we are about open up a Saturday night in Melbourne on May 10th called 'Hotcakes'. Regular DJs will be myself and Ennio Styles. Our first guests will be Russ Dewbury launching his new 'A Night At The Jazz Rooms' album, Elvis Aljus on percussion (from Gypsy Brown, also on the show this week actually) and Melbourne's own Deep Street Soul.

The launch night of 'Hotcakes' is on May 10th at the upstairs of The Laundry, 50 Johnston St, Fitzroy. Kick off is 9pm and entry of $10.
