Bemsha Swing

I’ve got a jazz quartet performance at the Royal College of Music today with Toby Nelms, Adam Higgs and Daniel Day. Here’s another video from the last quartet gig I had in March. It’s ‘Bemsha Swing’ by one of my favourite musicians, Thelonious Monk.

June

Yes, I know it’s not June. I was in the studio today with my good friend Clem Rooney recording some electronic jazz covers (coming soon). I had the great privilege of playing on a Violectra (seen below) for the session, kindly on loan to me by Moseley Violins. Violectras are quite simply, in my opinion, the finest electric violins in the world, each lovingly hand-made and personalised.

The final video from the Surrey University December 2011 session is now online! June is an amazing tune by pianist Peter James.

Back from Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a lovely city, full of very nice people and beautiful sights. I’m going into the studio with Adam Double tomorrow for a live session, but in the meantime, I leave you with a couple of shots from my trip!
