Rainlore's World of Music will become simply Rainlore's World in the New Year, with a subtext of '- Music, Arts & Letters.' This is in order to reflect the much broader spectrum the site has come to include over the years. Over the next year or two, a thorough revamp of the site is hoped to be carried out to take this into account and to simplify the site and make it more user-friendly too. For the time being, the domain will remain the same. Comments and suggestions always welcome.

A further review, of Ed Gray's Private Show (Fine Art) at Searcys, attended on 6th December, was also scheduled and is written up but is regrettably held back due to a delay with the illustrations. Hopefully, this will be included with the next site update.

Still on the topic of art, Alban Low, currently artist-in-residence at Twickfolk, Twickenham, will be having an exhibition, Art of Folk, from 6pm on Sunday 27th January 2013 at Twickfolk, The Cabbage Patch, 67 London Rd., Twickenham TW1 3SZ. Admission is free, and music is provided by Alan Franks from 7pm to put you even more in the mood! An event not to be missed! Low is renowned for his illustrations of gigs (inc. some he has already kindly done for this site!), album artwork as well as animations, including commissions for the BBC. In the meantime, you can find out more about his amazing work and download a catalogue of posters and prints at Alban Low's web site.

Happy New Year!

A review of a superb fine art exhibition for a change. It's Ed Gray - Ebb & Flow Exhibition, Dixie Queen, Butlers Wharf, Tower Bridge, London 11th November 2011. Gray is the artist behind the cover art for Burton Bradstock's album All Upon A Lovely Summer's Day. And there, of course, is the musical connection! A spectacular show, and a richly illustrated review. London in all its multicultural glory, too!

And, regardless of whether you're a film fan or not, you ought to read singer-songwriter Sarah Gillespie's acutely perceptive review of Ben Affleck's thriller Argo! Titled Argo and The Iranian Savage - a Film Review, there are lies, more lies, and more propaganda - the film, that is, and Ms. Gillespie's review should be a real eye-opener!

And finally, you might want to have a look at Yani Haigh's video Help is On the Way, using Rich Siegel's song of that title from his excellent album, The Way To Peace. It's an excellent video about solidarity with Gaza in the wake of the recent renewed savagery perpetrated by Israel. Go on folks, let's make this go viral!

After some delay due to 'man flu,' which also, to my greatest regret, caused me to miss out on two fabulous gigs, here we are again!

Having had to miss London Panorama, at least a special feature was in order, UK 2012 Panorama Finals, Elsmsie Horniman's Pleasance Park, Kensal Road, London W10, Saturday 25th August 2012 - Results & Commentary. Full results, plus I had to add my own 2 quid's worth...

The fab DJ Ritu's superb A World in London show on SOAS Radio is taking a summer break along with the latter till the first Wednesday in September, but you can always catch up on previous shows as play again on SOAS Radio and podcast on iTunes! To make this a little easier, three new special features covering episodes 21 - 50 bring the playlist archives almost right up to date: DJ Ritu's A World in London At SOAS Radio Ep. 21-30 Playlists And Links, DJ Ritu's A World in London At SOAS Radio Ep. 31-40 Playlists And Links, and DJ Ritu's A World in London At SOAS Radio Ep. 41-50 Playlists And Links! That should help us survive - if barely! - without the wonderful Ritu just a little better. You can also check Ritu's fab web site for much more! Ritu will be back with AWiL 55 on 6th September.

Another severely delayed site update due ongoing computer issues and other complications. But to make up, a special feature in the shape of a report/review of a cracker of a Film Gala from the London Documentary Festival of what will undoubtedly become an invaluable historical record!

It is of course of the Gala Screening of Golriz Kolahi's 'Gilad And All That Jazz' at The Soho Hotel Cinema, London W1 on Wednesday 30th May 2012, part of the London International Documentary Festival. A truly amazing film whose importance can only grow as time goes by. The subject of the documentary is none other than jazz colossus Gilad Atzmon - the man, the musician, the humanist-political activist. Fascinating!

A very delayed site update, due to computer problems and other complications. But on the other hand, a real slew of reviews elsewhere, and a Special Feature in the form of the second installment of archived playlists of DJ Ritu's A World in London At SOAS Radio Ep. 11-20 Playlists And Links. We'll catch up, eventually! At least most of the early shows are now covered that are in a bit of a state on the SOAS Radio site and can be hard to find there. Part three TF in the hopefully not too distant future.

Much delayed, an interim site update, with more to follow soon.

A bit of catching up going back to last November for now. A Report/Review, Musical Workshops With Gilad Atzmon / Launch of 'Gilad Uncovered - 10 Saxophone Solos By Gilad Atzmon Transcribed And Edited By Chris Gumbley' at Howarth Of London, London W1, 5th November 2011 (2011/11/06) - the best, most fun and most beneficial musical workshop it's been my pleasure to ever experience. Oh yes. And the launch of a fantastic little book! If you missed this event and are a sax player, you really missed something special. But all is not lost, as Atzmon frequently gives workshops and seminars. So look out for them!
