DALTIN TRIO - A REVIEW




C.A.C 34 (Collectif d'Artistes de Capestang)(Artists' Collective of Capestandg) continued its tradition of bringing artists of outstanding quality to the region with their presentation on 20 February, 2015 of the Daltin Trio.These guys were good: Grégory Daltin ; Accordion, Accordina, Bandonéon / Julien Duthu ; Upright Bass / Sébastien Gisbert ; Percussion. They treated a full house to melodic, rhythmic jazz within tight, dynamic compositions. Each member contributed, demonstrating mastery of their instruments and a flair for composition. Check them out on Youtube and, if like what you hear and you get the opportunity, see them in person. We're glad that we did.

GRAND CAFE OCCITAN: RESTAURANT REVIEW

  We made our way to a new restaurant the other day, up toward the hills past La Liviniere in the small town of Felines-Minervois. None of our party had been there before, but a friend had visited and said that she'd enjoyed it. She's a vegetarian. First clue. Now don't get me wrong.

And I enjoy eating omni. Enough preamble... I never went inside the Grand Cafe Occitan. A young lady who would be our server met us at the front door of the nicely pointed old stone house, leading us to a pebble-covered courtyard on the side

THINKING OUT LOUD...

GRACE SLICK, BREXIT AGAIN, SELF CHECKOUT, AND MORE: #18

    GRACE SLICK I just listened again to Volunteers , the last Jefferson Airplane album with the 'classic' lineup. 1969. Perfect. Sometimes sloppy. Sometimes over dramatic. But perfect. And Grace Slick. Grace. Slick. Perfect. BREXIT & CONSERVATISM Except for the 30% or so who've drunk the Kool-Aid, can we all agree that Brexit is not working out as advertised? And that the Republican Party in the USofA has sold its soul to a cadre of authoritarians who think they are the true small-d-democrats but who don't want everybody to have a vote and won't abide by a vote that they don't like? How did it happen that, in the name of political conservatism, two countries put into power incompetent leaders financed by greedy elites? And I just read that Michael Gove thinks that Liz Truss is toast because her agenda has been shredded. Whose agenda has been shredded more thoroughly than Gove’s and why would any thinking person be interested in his opinions except to liste
