I’m pleased to announce a new Element date for the diary: we will be playing on Wednesday 6th November at the Orange Tree in Richmond, in Flo Moore’s first performance as a member of the Way Out West Collective.

Also, I’m involved (both playing and arranging) in a gig at King’s Place on Saturday 9th November. The evening is a celebration of the music of Kenny Wheeler, and features two ensembles from the Royal Academy of Music with guests Nikki Iles and Stan Sulzmann.

I also have a very busy London Jazz Festival lined up this year and I’ll write about that soon.
