You may well long have known this - if so sorry for repetition and for ‘re-bringing’ old bad news – but I only just learned that KB Mensah died on NY Eve in Ghana. I see he's mentioned somewhere on this site, as an old school/college friend of several JB-linked musicians.

He and I had remained good friends, though latterly only getting together occasionally, when we were both in London (he’d been living back in Ghana for some years) – he always made a real effort to stay in touch.

So many good (albeit, from the earliest days, often stoned) memories of him, so often revolving also around music, from listening to reggae and jazz in his Oxford rooms to going together, later, in London to hear everything from Louis Moholo and other visiting Africans to various latterday manifestations of the Institution/Random Hold/Jazz Butcher ‘family’… I wish the attached could show, and let me hear again, his laugh.

I'll be in London Aug 15-17 and then again Aug 25-27. Came here fingers crossed to maybe see if there was a show in Northampton I could make my way too and now see I'll miss three full JBC shows by a matter of days. Great to see you playing again but shaking my head at my unfortunate timing

The Last of the Gentlemen Adventurers
doc6502... - Doc, Chicago - 11Mar2014 8:14 PM

I confess, I had no small amount of trepidation approaching the new record. Indeed, I've had it in my possession for a year and I just completed the third listening.

Since the JBC hits me on a basic emotional level (even the funny stuff, always has done), I worry about the releases from my favorite artists as I age exponentially. It's not doubt, it's just wondering where this communique will fit in the cupboard of things near and dear to me. Either there's less space in there, or there are more items in store than I'd care to admit.

I needn't have worried. This is a wonderful record. I'll spare you my nonsense re: what I like and why.

Thanks for realizing you had another one in you and getting it out the door.


Calgary High Performance Rodeo

Just wanted to follow up on the invitation for The JBC to play at Calgary's well respected High Performance Rodeo. I am not a good friend of Michael (though we have met a few times) but I have attended many events at The High Performance Rodeo and at One Yellow Rabbit theatre and can vouch for the wonderful festival and concur that you would be a wonderful fit. I have sent several messages on this board requesting for you guys to return to Calgary for a live show or two. This might be the best way and venue to make it happen. Please bring Max with you! I enjoyed your last couple of shows here in town but it has been way too long and we need you back! Love the new album!

My brother's mix
msclafani... - Mike from Bronx, NY - 23Jan2014 5:49 PM
So twenty-one years ago, my brother passed away. When going through his things, I found a mix tape of great songs with no tracklisting. It took me twenty-one years, but I finally identified the last two songs: Olof Palme, and the up-tempo version of Southern Mark Smith that appears on Gift of Music.

Unfortunately, I cannot find a digital version of either song. Is there anyone who can help me? I'm more than willing to pay. This would be of great emotional importance to me.

Merry Xmas La Mer 2012
h2ofuego... - Jimmy Duval - 26Dec2013 9:04 PM
Wishing A Very Happy Xmas (albeit a day late) to The JBC (Pat, Max, Johnny and Tim) and to all the gentlefolk out there! Many thanks for the Xmas surprise, "Gents"!! I've had La Mer 2012 on constant repeat (along with the "The Last of The English Gentleman" and the recently acquired Curtis E Johnson's "The Compleat Unknown"). Adding a little spice into the Xmas festivities. An utterly unexpected and absolutely marvelous surprise treat for the holiday season! Happy to New Year to all!!
