My new album is coming along nicely – we have almost finished all the recording, after which we will begin mixing, The album will be finished by the end of January and probably released in May next year. Check out some photos from our weekend in Fieldgate here.
It’s London Jazz Festival week again and I have some exciting gigs coming up. My band is playing at the Royal Festival Hall foyer at 2 pm on Saturday 12th as part of the BBC Radio 3 Jazz Line-Up programme, so you can catch it on the radio too if you can’t make it over. I am also playing in in a trio with Helena Kay (recent Young Scottish Jazz Musician Of The Year) later that afternoon at the Barbican Freestage. On Sunday 13th Patchwork Jazz Orchestra is back! We’re playing doing the lunchtime slot at the 606 club with music starting at 1:30 pm. It’ll be our first gig since our Patchwork night back in April.
On Friday 18th I am playing at the Mosaic album launch gig at the Cadogan Hall foyer in the afternoon – this is also the day that Ralph Wyld’s debut album is being released. And finally on Sunday 20th I am doing an evening gig at Omnibus Arts Centre in Clapham with Rob Luft and Marc Michel, which will be the second outing of our new trio “Luftabbamic”.
