Travelling all day today …

I am travelling all of today to the US for the MMT Conference in Kansas City which begins on Thursday. I hope to see some of you at the conference which will be a major development in our program of work and advocacy. From there I am onto London for the British Labour Party Conference presentation (Monday) and the book launch of my latest book (with Thomas Fazi) Reclaiming the State: A Progressive Vision of Sovereignty for a Post-Neoliberal World (Tuesday – see below for free ticket access). For details of all the events associated with my speaking tour in the next fortnight see below.

While I am away, the blog might be rather sketchy. The itinerary is very tight with lots of travel which is disruptive for considered research and writing.

I also won’t be able to attend to comments in the next 24 hours or so.

At the very least, while I am away, I will keep a daily diary and post audio, interviews, photos, videos etc where possible.

But for now – some music ….

Some music to listen to ..

On Thursday night I am playing guitar in Kansas City with a jazz trio (piano, bass, drums). This is the sort of stuff we will be exploring although it might go from this to some things a little more raucous as we go!

This is the title track from the 1963 Album – Midnight Blue – by American guitarist Kenny Burrell.

It is one of my favourite records of all time. A Blue Note label jazz classic.
