On Dec 14th at 8 p.m., the Dave Warren Jazz Quartet are back at the Three Elms https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Three-Elms-Chignal-St-James/640784632746021?fref=tson .
We are also playing in a jazz festival on December 10th at the Morden Arms in Greenwich https://www.facebook.com/morden.arms. We have an hour slot at 3.30 and I am really pleased that a couple of old friends have promised to drop in to see our set. It should be a good day, with about a dozen bands playing from mid-day onwards, reflecting a variety of jazz styles.
You can here us at http://www.guitar-ukulele.co.uk/jazzquartet/ though we have evolved quite a lot since that recording was done. We still play some tunes from the great American Songbook, but mixed in with some Latin tunes and a lot of groove-driven material from the likes of Gabor Szabo, Roy Budd, Ernest Ranglin, Hugh Masekela and John Scofield.
Thanks for visiting my site. I am an economist with more years of experience than I care to admit to, most of it in overseas development, though I have also worked as Chief Economist in the UK Home Office, and had a brief stint in the Cabinet Office. The site contains:-
i. My research and consultancy work on economic development – most of this is available on researchgate.net, but not everyone has access to that.
ii. Discussion of policy issues that interest me, trying to push back against the avalanche of lies and distortions that seem increasingly to taint our politics and our media coverage.
iii. Some of my fiction writing while I figure out how best to get it either published or self-published. Short stories under the heading ‘Lives in Development’ can be seen here https://mickfoster.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/lives-in-development.pdf
iv. I will also have a theme for the various bands and music events I am involved in, with a few links to where our music can be heard.
