Van Morrison hogs the "SJI" news roundup this week. The Kansas City Star
article about him mentioned las week is reprinted in The Mercury News
, and in somewhat truncated form
in The Journal News
(of New York State). And a concert review in the Philadelphia Inquirer said
Morrison's "heart obviously belonged to oldies like the New Orleans funeral march 'St. James Infirmary.'"
And a sort of weird little writeup
in The Herald
(UK) on the Ediburgh Jazz Festival includes this note: "Over in George Square, the Sydney Zenith Jazz Band delighted a packed Spiegeltent with their own brand of trad, and proved that there's still life in such old warhorses as 'My Gal Sal' and 'St. James Infirmary'."
