Vive la jornada electoral desde Londres: votos, mus, paella y fútbol


Dejando a un lado la jugada de las papeletas que nunca llegaron, el derecho a voto por correo que quedó en leyenda o las inquietudes de los que seguimos los altibajos del IBEX35 y la prima de riesgo, este domingo nos la jugamos. Aunque a distancia, haz del 20N una jornada “a la española”.

Londoner weekend: Jazz Festival + Rolling Stone’s arty secret


London Jazz Festival. If you really want to be tuned on, don’t miss their blog, with accurate and down to earth reviews. They also like to include anecdotes or curious episodes of the artists performing that day. If a techie junkie, then they also have a free to download phone app so can allow yourself to be posted whenever and wherever.

For Friday, my personal picks will be Emilia Martesson, at London Ray’s Club at FOYLES King’s Cross, Zakir Hussain for a good international beat, as he would be in charge of the Masters of Percussion series on the 11th at the Royal Elisabeth Hall, Southbank Centre. On Saturday evening, I’d rather head to the London Royal Academy of Arts to enjoy The Music of Sidney Bechet. Clarinettist/saxophonist Robert Veen will explore the legacy of influential jazz icon Sidney Bechet, performing many of the pieces Bechet wrote after moving permanently to France in 1950, such as ‘Les Oignons’ and his international hit ‘Petite Fleur’.  If your taste leads you to a more modern approach, don’t miss out Ben L’Oncle Soul. He grew up listening to Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin, and combines Ray Charles-style R&B, Motown groove and Stax-y horns with reggae and hip-hop. Since fulfilling his dream by signing to “Motown France”, he’s become a hit in his home country and now plays his first British concert at the Festival. Don’t forget to book your tickets in advance, from £25, as it promises to be a sold out.

Rolling Stone’s sketchy art. If you don’t feel like jazz-ing around but still a good music fan, then The Gallery in Cork St would positively surprise you from the 10th of November and to this coming Sunday. They would be featuring ‘Ronnie Wood: Faces, Time and Places’. The Rolling Stone was also a trained artist, who knew it? See a collection of works created since the ’60s, including sketches of everyone from Eric Clapton to Jerry Hall in a behind-the-scenes look at rock ’n’ roll. Where: The Gallery in Cork Street, 28 Cork St., W1S 3NG.

Chapeau!
