Friends and Heroes.

I’ve been fortunate to play alongside some wonderful musicians on my travels over the past several years. I’ve also had the chance to meet some others who have long been my heroes. Here are some pictures with some of them – this album will keep growing as I have a chance to find some of my old photos!

Recording Plans.

On Wednesday this week, I spent a very pleasant evening at the Scarborough Jazz club night at the Cask Inn, Scarborough. I went along to watch my old friend Steve Parry, who was the guest artiste of the week. I took my horn along and sat in for much of the second set. We had such a good time playing together again that afterwards we agreed that we should get together and record a CD. This is something we hope to do in the next few weeks, before my emigration to the USA. Fortunately, Steve has recording equipment and a grand piano at his house so we have a place to do it!

There’ll be a news item added about this once we’ve ironed out the details and figured out who else will be playing with us. In the meantime, I’m busy writing some new tunes so we have something to play! Back with more soon….
