Sequencer

Ho-ho! Just bought a new toy on an impulse, while shopping in Chappells for music stands and an Aulos sopranino recorder for Zak (3). It’s a Yamaha QY70 “music sequencer”. A fabulous portable (tiny) box of tricks with which I can (when I’ve read he manual a few times) program accompaniments for my jazz practice. It was reduced in price by £150 with a “find it cheaper anywhere else and we’ll kill you” pledge attached to it. 

I also bought a very usful-looking book called “1001 Jazz Licks”. I’m spending a lot on all this jazz stuff. Thank goodness the cornet didn’t cost me anything!
