We're planning on going to NYC again in September to record another album with Frank Basile and some other amazing American musicians. If this sounds interesting to you please visit our Kickstarter page whaere you can pledge money for various rewards. We have some great deals available on our previous albums, CDs of our unreleased material and even a live DVD so it's well worth considering if you're interested in our music. Or if you're strapped for cash but you still want to help we would REALLY appreciate it if you could spread the word through Facebook, Twitter or by simply emailing your friends. Thank you!
I'm very pleased to announce that I will be joining the teaching faculty at Leeds College of Music as their principal Jazz trumpet lecturer. I'm very much looking forward to starting work in September!
Excited to announce that I've been invited by Jeremy Pelt to appear at FONT (Festival of New Trumpet, Dave Douglas' festival) in NYC at Smoke jazz club in September. I'll be playing with Osian Roberts and some heavy New York cats in the rhythm section. Watch this space!
Very excited about the release of our new album 'When Night Falls' featuring the amazing Frank Basile from New York, one of the best Baritone Saxophonists in the world today. Also appearing on it is the great pianist Albert Sanz from Spain and our very own Matt Fishwick on drums and Dave Whitford on bass. We will be touring in the UK in February 2014 to promote the CD.
You can hear me playing the jazz trumpet solos on the new Ian Dury bio-pic 'Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll' with Dylan Howe on drums, Chris Hill on bass, Chas Yankel (from the Blockheads) on piano and Andy Serkis on Tenor Saxophone. The soundtrack has just been nominated for a BAFTA...
