Rob Hughes Quintet - 20.12.14

 

                I enjoyed a great gig at Ajani on Saturday. I had the pleasure of performing with a good friend of mine who I have not played with for nearly 14 years, the double bass player Wun Yen Chan. We first met when we studied a BTEC in performing arts in Kidderminster. Since then our paths led in different directions until this year where we bumped into each other at a gig. As well as this I was joined by the fabolous pianist Tim Laptorn who's playing is inspirational as you can hear above. Reuben Fowler joined me on Flugel click on his name to find out about Reuben's projects because they are worth a listen. 

     Finally the fantastic Francesco Mendolia joined me on drums, his style of drumming is very exciting and original in style. We performed some classic standards to a crowd that really 'got it' which is a delight for me.

Holly Johnson

 

 November 2014

Holly Johnson Koko 74

 

                              I'be been having fun working with Holly Johnson on his latest album tour. The music is great with a co write on a couple of tracks from Vangelis which gives Holly's music a real 'Blade Runner' sound and feel about it. I'm playing keyboards, Saxophone and Flutes along with some back up vocals so it's a busy gig but great fun. The next concerts are in Germany in the first week of  December.

  

 

Art

'Artists make art for themselves. Art is an honest expression. Artists who pander to their fans by trying to make music “for” their fans make empty, transparent art. The true fan does not want you to make music for them, they want you to make music for you, because that’s the whole reason they fell in love with you in the first place.'

Rick Laughlin's Electet

 

Here is a short extract from a great new project run by Rick Laughlin. The music is very demanding to play but sounds fab!

Ealing Jazz August 2014

 

    I've included a little bit of backstage camera work from a recent gig with Paul Carmichael's band 'Flight'. You can't see me but I'm blowing away on Flute while the wonderfull Fergus Gerand and Richard Bailey perform great solos on percussion and drums respectively.
