This is my 'old' quartet. Well, from 2008. The days when we played to empty houses and £40 taxi rides and lucky to even get £5 for the gig, so I decided to give it all up (I mean in terms of having a band!!) until the Chilli came along. But listening to these tracks also shows how my playing has came on a hell of a lot from hard practice which I rarely did back then so maybe I need to invest in having some more recent recordings or more gigs.....

p.s. in case anything pops up I have my own myspace: www.myspace.com/harleyjohnsonpiano and YouTube site: http://www.youtube.com/user/harleyjohnsonpiano (which already includes a video of me playing at the Gateshead Jazz Festival 2009 with the Improvisers Orchestra of the North, plus some of my favourite videos by other great artists).
