I recently found out that my quartet, the Park Quartet, will be performing some of Stewart Copeland’s compositions (Orchestralli) alongside the Royal College of Music’s Big Band with the man himself! Stewart Copeland is best known as the drummer from the supergroup ‘The Police’. This is really something to look forward to!
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.
On Saturday, I was doing a gig with a group of RCM string players in the beautiful village of Lamberhurst in Kent. I thoroughly recommend a visit there if you’re nearby. It’s my end-of-year recital examination tomorrow, woe betide me. However, Wednesday will see me taking a holiday in Amsterdam. The perfect end to an exciting term!
