Other CD launches and showcases - John and The Sisters (April 20) at the Rivoli. Phenomenal playing _ I like the ironing board routine though I hear others were not impressed.

Last Saturday, it was Paul James's 26th Anniversary and he gave a great show at Hugh's Room. A much bigger crowd than Big Bill Morganfield (son of Muddy Waters) two nights before.

Afterwords I headed over to the Dior Lounge for their big final blues blowout. No more fri night blues shows. After this, they're going to have DJs.

I missed the Jaymz Bee CD Launch at the Senator, now I bet that was a great party!
