I was expecting a small turn-out and lots of cancellation on bookings on my first concert in 2020; given that it had fallen on Friday, 31st January at Lido Jazz, when the temperature reached 43 degrees (yikes!). With the number of cancelled trains and congestions, it was natural to be overtly realistic on how the night might turn out.
So, it was sincerely heartwarming to see that people still come in to see our Quartet playing a mix of (mostly) french and jazz tunes. The place was full!
Thank you so much for coming down in one of the balmiest night. Thank you for Lido Jazz staff for looking after us and ensuring everybody has nice cool water (and libations!) and making sure the A/C works. It was indeed a great start for 2020.
