Live video from a fund raising gig for Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses:
I'm very excited about
Nu-Phonic - a new project formed to showcase my original contemporary jazz compositions.
It is a quartet featuring myself, Roger Humbles, on saxes,
(I studied at Guildhall School of Music and have performed at Ronnie Scotts, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Vortex, 606 Club, Hideaway etc)
Matt Skeaping on drums (Matt has recorded with Claire Martin (OBE), and with Jamie Cullum for 18 months. Other notable credits include a stint with Adrian Cox, Liam Noble, Phil Robson, Alex Hutton, the late Dudu Pukwana, TJ Johnson and many others)
Christian Prior on piano (he also runs his own projects Gin Trap House Band and Dreiklang trio)
(For The Herne Hill Festival gig on Oct 11th The very marvellous David Frankel will stand in for Christian)
Julie Walkington on acoustic bass (Julie has been a part of the London jazz scene for nearly 3 decades, playing with noted musicians such as Harry Beckett, Jim Mullen, Russ Henderson, Lol Coxhill, Claire Martin, Veryan Weston, Geoff Eales and Barb Jungr with whom she recorded and toured extensively.
She has recorded and toured with vocalists Georgia Mancio, Tina May and (Canadian) Tammy Weis, and performs with London jazz choir ‘Take Twenty’ led by Ben Cox.
This year she recorded with FEWtrio, a new piano trio project and also Moonscape, a chordless quartet, who played at the Manchester Jazz Festival July 2018. She is performing regularly with Alina Bzhezhinska’s Hip Harp Collective)

I am injured and cannot play saxophone for a while so for this gig the immense talent that is Joe Browne will be standing in for me. He has postgraduate degrees in jazz saxophone from Birmingham Conservatoire and Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied with George Garzone, and is now
busy in London with his own quintet and various jazz and world music ensembles. He also regularly leads workshops for Trinity Laban Conservatoire, The London Philharmonic Orchestra and The Philharmonia Orchestra. He is an Associate Educator for the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) and director of jazz education at Deal Music and Arts.
