I started this website in 2012 when my first CD How About You? came out. I have now recorded another CD for 33 Jazz Records – I Wish You Love. As on the first album, the songs are almost all from the classical jazz repertoire – favourites from the Great American Songbook of the 20’s and 30’s that I have sung for years.
Jazz bands come in different sizes and shapes and each one is interesting and exciting in its own way. I chose to do How About You? with just three instruments: guitar, double bass and tenor saxophone, and I was blessed with three brilliant musicians in Charles Alexander, David Moses and Al Nicholls. For my second album I have used the same trio plus another very special musician, Lester Brown, on trumpet. Both CD’s have been the product of our work together with the fine engineer, Neil Brockbank, at the Gravity Shack Studio.
The artwork on both CD’s was done by Sam Rich. Eliza Beveridge took the photo of me with the classic RCA Victor 44 microphone.
