Woody Allen at 81 at the Royal Albert Hall
« on: June 23, 2017, 08:41:57 AM »
Woody Allen had a brief interview on BBC Radio 4'sToday prog.

 Still with it, still self-deprecation in what sounds like a very sincere way - but still playing great jazz!

He was aplologetic about the casualness and the errors.

But that is what true trad jazz is all about, play what you like, how you like, when you like, improvise on errors, ad lib a bit . . . . . . . .

It sounds great to me.

One quick question on the situation in America, basically, "The Administration just does not work."

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

He's 81?  :shocked: Much older than I thought he was!
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.
