Phil Robson wins at 2009 Parliamentary Awards.

Last year I was pleased to post my congratulations to Chrisine Tobin on her win at the BBC Jazz Awards.

Today, it is with great pleasure to say congratulations to her life-partner, frequent musical partner, and ace guitarist, Phil Robson for last evening’s win in the Best Musician category of the 2009 Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

 The great and good – our MPs, that is – may not be getting much right recently, but in choosing Phil they can congratulate themselves on getting something right this time.
