Rifftides reader Ted O’Reilly writes from Toronto:
I wasn’t much inclined to shop much at Crocojazz personally – I’m not into vinyl as some are – but it was not as inviting as I’d hoped. Unorganized, dusty, boxes and crates on the floor…a treasure hunt, perhaps, but as I was without my spade, not much more than ‘a cultural’ experience.
Here’s the late John Norris in a picture I took (it sez here) on May 28/08. Note that it was taken before we went in. He might not have been as excited on the way out…
Later that night, we went to hear a good-fun-revivalist gang (with a great bilingual pun-name) the Hot Antic Jazz Band. (authentique = hot antic of course…)
