Happy New Year to you all. We had a wonderful christmas concert with my big band for Splash Point Jazz Club Eastbourne. It was so good that we have been asked to play their Xmas concert in 2024; details nearer the time 🙂 I’ve had a slow start as I’ve had an operation which has

I have been very lax re blogging! My last blog was July 2022 🙂 I’ve also been very poor at advertising my gigs but lately this was due to the fact that my computer had picked up a very aggressive bug and I have had no means of accessing my website for over a month

Well, we were all hoping to get back to some kind of normality, but it now looks like we will have a second wave of Covid and probably go back into lockdown 🙁 As you know, all gigs are off apart from the very occasional outdoor gig or an online streaming concert 🙁 I have

Dear Jazz Fans, well, we are still in the grip of Covid 19 and social distancing so the chance of going back to gigging soon is very slim indeed. I’ve been recording short videos for students and fellow musicians to play along to – if you’d like to have a go, subscribe to my YouTube
