Jam Session @ The Passing Cloud, Lomdon, 7/3/11

The London Improvisers were done and I had a flyer for this (got it from the top of the upright piano at The Vortex that afternoon).  It was a short walk from Cafe Oto.  It was a lot of fun.  Jam session at Passing Cloud means lots of African percussion and some African vocals.  Oh yeah!  I didn't stay too long - it's a hassle to get back to my friend's place late night.  Also, I was gonna do my quick 22.5 hour stay in Wales, leaving the next day.  I didn't want it to turn in to a 14 hour stay if I stayed out too late this night.  I danced and had a good time for about an hour.
