You wouldn’t think it to look at him, but Birmingham jazz saxophonist Andy Hamilton celebrated his 92nd birthday today – and he did it with a lunchtime performance at the Drum in Aston. Free entry, and with Caribbean food.
And he’ll be there next week too. He’s there every week. It’s just that this week happened to be his birthday, so I thought I’d go along and hear him play.
He’s very good, of course – but to be fair, he has been practising for quite a long time.
