OK so I’m sorry I have not posted in a VERY long time.
Since I’ve been off the road I have been playing very little and otherwise have been fully focussed on making new music.
Over the last few months I have been travelling to the houses of some of the most wonderful musicians I know in order to work with them on the structure and details of many new compositions.
Riad Abji (Double Bass) and Vicky Flint (Trumpet-Flugelhorn) have worked tirelessly with me over this time to help the songs gain a sense of structure and direction.
Also for many months now I have been working closely with Dave Smale.
Dave has worked with me on all 3 previous records and it has been a pleasure to once again collaborate with him on material.
Especially as his awesome cat ‘Alfie’ seems determined to get in on the action.
So as the months have moved by I have slowly been working to bring this material to a logical point. It’s sort of driven me mental at times but I think it’s all starting to make sense now.
More news will follow. I promise it won’t be long now 🙂
