A very busy period ahead. Beginning on 30th October, there are a number of gigs with Louis Moholo-Moholo - both in duo and quartet settings. Please do pick up a copy of the new album from the quartet (Jason Yarde, John Edwards, Louis, yours truly). It's released on Ogun as part of that label's 40th birthday celebrations, and features a wonderful cover image by Gina Southgate. I'm also proud to have been asked to contribute an arrangement to the book of the Dedication Orchestra, which will be premiered at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 15th November.
I'm very busy throughout the London Jazz Festival. On 14th November, I'm excited to be playing at the Purcell Room in duo with Polish maverick Marcin Masecki - info here. On the 19th at the Vortex, I'm very much looking forward to playing solo piano. And on 22nd, I'll be playing in Nick Malcolm's quartet.
Finally - we recorded the trio (Neil Charles, Tom Skinner, and myself) in the studio recently. The session went really well, and I'm looking forward to bringing more news of this early Spring 2015 release very soon.
