Just started the excellent BBC miniseries State of Play. Riveting so far...
Bravo to casting director Wendy Brazington, who included some of my favourite British actors, including Bill Nighy and Kelly MacDonald, both fantastic in the small but wonderful film The Girl in the Cafe, and Polly Walker, who played the wicked Atia of the Julii on the also-undersung HBO drama Rome, which I've blogged about before (Feb 3/07).

Just back from a great time playing the 3rd Annual Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music in Detroit at the wonderful Bohemian House. Sara and I really appreciated the warm response we got playing a Saris set. Wonderful folks to hang with all around. Particularly loved hanging with Warren Smith. Such a wealth of fascinating insights, information, and great humour. What a gentleman! Check this killing video with him, Tony, Don Alias, Larry Young, Ted Dunbar and Junie Booth.
