New Video: ‘When Ellington Swings’

It’s been a month since I have put anything on this site. That does not mean I have not been busy.

On the creative front, I have taken to writing some poems that tell the story of a cricket league game I play with my son called the Ten10 League. The game is played using Howzat dice and there are eight imaginary teams, each with a different theme. My dad played with these dice when he was a boy. Then he taught me and this game was a constant of my childhood. Now I am teaching my son the same game.

The poems are loose, improvised, a bit of an opportunity to let off steam.

The first product is the song and video above, ‘When Ellington Swings’, which is a heartfelt tribute to the bowling prowess of Duke Ellington of the New York Jazz Swingers.

If you like it, how about sharing it with your friends?
