It was really great to make so many new friends in Vancouver at the start of the summer - the trio with François Houle and Harris Eisenstadt was a tonne of fun, and I'm excited to get the chance to do that again, and to get back to Canada as soon as possible.
The summer is very busy. I am playing twice, including solo, at the Manchester Jazz Festival, as well as appearing in duo with Louis Moholo-Moholo at Konfrontationen in Nickelsdorf.
Speaking of Louis, Ogun are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. In celebration, there are two new releases on which I appear. Please do check out the newly released Louis Moholo-Moholo Unit 'For the Blue Notes'. And in the Autumn, keep your eyes peeled for the Louis Moholo-Moholo Quartet's 'Four Blokes'. And of course the duo album 'Keep Your Heart Straight' (pictured below) remains available!

We had a wonderful night recently with the Louis Moholo-Moholo Quartet at Cafe Oto in London. Thank you very much to Richard Williams for this generous coverage.
