Things continue apace moving into the Autumn. In September, I'm looking forward to playing at the Royal Festival Hall for the first time - that's with Mulatu Astatke. October sees the Wayne Horvitz European Orchestra reconvening (at the Bimhuis); another meeting of Steve Davis' Human; as well as the start of a run of dates with Louis Moholo-Moholo.
November is very busy, with some extremely exciting gigs as part of the EFG London Jazz festival, and of course abroad too.
It was great to visit Italy late in August to take part in Roberto Ottaviano's recorded tribute to his friend and teacher, the great Steve Lacy; more news before long on this recording. And speaking of recordings, please keep an eye/ear out for two new releases, as part of the celebrations for the Ogun label's 40th birthday: the Louis Moholo-Moholo Unit's 'For The Blue Notes' is on shelves now; whilst the Moholo-Moholo Quartet's '4 Blokes' will be dropping very soon...it goes without saying that I'm immensely proud to appear on these, and I hope you may enjoy them too.
