Manchester Jazz and all that

Wednesday, 30th July 2008

Just back from Manchester. Had a nervewracking and wonderful gig there last Saturday. I arrived only 10 minutes before doors were due to open and there was already a queue outside. Playing as a duo is fairly exposing and we only had time to check levels and we were on.
That was the nervewracking part. The audience were quiet. attentive and appreciative. They really made the evening for me. Great playing with Kathy again, such a melodic and fluent guitarist. I think our playing is very complementary and we ended with a fairly rousing version of “All the Things” having chosen some Emily Remler favourites.
PS Don’t forget this Friday at Pizza Soho y’all.

Friday 1 August

Wednesday, 23rd July 2008

Come along to Pizza Express Soho if you can. We’re playing tunes featured on the new album and I’ve also been writing some new material. We’ll be playing that including one dedicated to Ejsborn Svenson. His death was really disturbing, what a great loss to music.

Midsummers Night Dream

Friday, 27th June 2008

Sorry for the bad pun but the gig last Saturday was on the 21 June and it went really well.

Great atmosphere, audience, really enjoyed playing with Laka, Josefina, Alison, Simon. All those years playing together in the Guest Stars…in the 80s. Only Simon wasn’t old enough.
Someone remarked at the end of the gig it must be so nice to share playing music with old friends.
It is.
Of course Chats Palace isn’t Stonehenge but you know when the sun shines off the roof of Canary Wharf and streams down Chatsworth Road and hits Millfields…..and another thing, Leyton.
Must be a ley line in there somewhere? Fun.
Thanks to everyone who came.
