The Gymnopedist

Aloha! (that’s as much joy as I can summon up on this ‘beautiful summer’s day)

I hope you’re having a beautiful summery day! Here’s a quick post about some exciting new media. This video of my jazz quartet was recorded live at a private concert in Chelsea. It’s a jazzed-up version of ‘The Gymnopedist’ by the very talented solo artist Jono McCleery, who I’m delighted has shared the video himself and given it his blessing. A few other tunes from this concert will soon be released in the form of a free EP for your downloading delectation!

Collaboration with Klara Kjellen

I’ve recently been working with Swedish singer/songwriter Klara Kjellen who is well underway on her second album. We went into the studio yesterday to record a string quartet for a couple of her songs, which I’ve arranged. I was joined by the combined talents of Marie Schreer, Julian Fish and Phil Kelynack. Watch this space for the finished products!
