Earlier this week the great Steve Ajao was knocked down on a pedestrian crossing and he is seriously ill in hospital. Steve is a giant in Birmingham jazz and blues circles, and not just because he towers over almost everyone. One of the nicest blokes you could ever wish to meet, Steve runs the Bebop Club in Ladypool Road in Balsall Heath and tonight there will be all sorts of things going on to raise money for him and some of the best jazz musicians in the area will be playing. Jazz musicians don't get sick pay... come along if you can.
