I had a brilliant night at the Purcell Room as part of the London Jazz Festival 2014 exploring some of the great British Jazz composers. Hepled by some great arrangements by Jason Yarde, Liam Noble and Laura Jurd and the beautiful contributions of our two wonderful guests Bobby Wellins and Norma Winstone. We covered a diverse and fascinating set of music and a few people have asked me to put the set list up on line so here it is:
Excited to announce that Edition records will be releasing our debut album on November 27th 2015. Still mixing the album but its going to be really lovely can't wait for people to hear it. We also have Anne Rigg from Right Tempo representing us and she already has some great gigs. Album launch on December 3rd at Kings Place In London be great to see loads of people there. Taster tracks up soon , watch this space for major UK tour 2016 !
