THE SUPER BIG TRAMP BAND
The line-up is the usual jazz big band instrumentation - trumpets,
trombones, saxophones and rhythm section. We play versions of Supertramp
tunes, arranged by members of the band, with me as the chief soloist.
No vocals. We will play at the Manchester Jazz festival in May,
Hull in November, Hamburg in December and Europe next year!
WHEN I WAS
I will do some gigs and record an album of ballads with a string
quartet and a Hammond organ. The arrangements are being done by
that great composer/arranger/saxophonist - Andy Scott. The musicians
are myself on tenor saxophone and clarinet, "The Singh String Quartet"
led by Rakhi Singh, and the mighty Hammond organ will be played
by one of my favourite musicians - and a member of “Crème Anglaise”
- John Ellis. We will play at Storyhouse in Chester in July, Ambleside,
Cumbria, in August and the rest of the world starting in 2020! See
“live” on this site for more information about both projects, and
other gigs at which I will be a guest.
