Photos from LUME Festival 2016

Some great photos of LUME Festival (26th  June 2016 at IKLECTIK) taken by Alex Bonney. LUME is a platform for original and improvised music co-founded by myself and Cath Roberts in 2013. We are very proud of our first ever festival!

Entropi at Manchester Jazz Festival 27th July

Really enjoyed playing at Manchester Jazz Festival with my contemporary jazz quintet ENTROPI at The Central Library this week. Lovely crowd and great room to play in. We also got a chance to hang out and enjoy some (brief) sunshine!

Soul Immigrants gigs 29/30th July

Two really fun gigs with The Soul Immigrants these past couple of days. Signed to P-Vine Records Japan, I’ve been a member of this band since 2006! Cool tunes, shed loads of funk and lots of room to improvise, it’s really a joy to perform with this bunch of great musicians! We played at The Blues Kitchen, a cool venue in Camden last night (midnight set!) warming up for a very special set supporting Fred Wesley and the New JBs tonight at Under The Bridge. Great vibes all round!

ENTROPI @ Manchester Jazz Festival!

I am hugely excited about playing at Manchester Jazz Festival with my band ENTROPI on Wednesday 27th at Manchester Central Library 3.30pm. We’ll be playing some new material soon to be recorded and released on Whirlwind Recordings Autumn 2017.

Be great to see you there!!
