“Use it or lose it” said the punter quoted by Ian Storrer in his news letter announcing the end of the music series at Future Inn. The harsh economics have caught up with it and a business that has been supporting a fantastic club over the last couple of years has decided it can’t sustain it. The audiences just weren’t big enough regularly enough. Its harsh to place a sort of moral imperative on people to go to live music, but the equally harsh reality is if they don’t in sufficient numbers, then it won’t be there to see. That thought echoed a bit last night as I looked at the modest crowd out for Katya Gorrie at the Wine Vaults with the Jazzhouse Trio. She delivered her set to an appreciative but small crowd who lapped up the well honed standards and down beat repartee backed by the trio with Vyv in his usual hard swinging but never predicable form. Bass man Wade Edwards has performed heroics keeping the gig going lets hope the chill winds don’t blow another great little club away
